What is a Permanent Prescription Drug Drop Box and why do we need it?

With the increase in prescription drug abuse, it has become imperative that action must be taken. These permanent drug drop boxes provide a safe and effective way to dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed for their intended purpose. The drugs in the drop-box will then be safely incinerated.

Take your unwanted or expired prescription drugs to these locations at any time:
