Sheriff’s Office will accept any and all old or outdated medications, anytime

Drug Drop program:  Environmentally friendly way to dispose of medications

Note: The Sheriff's Office will not accept medications from commercial establishments. Syringes will also not be accepted.

Monroe County – The Monroe County The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone about the drug disposal program offered at all our county Sheriff's Substations and the reasons why it is important to dispose of medications in the right way.

County-wide, citizens may bring no-longer-needed prescription drugs and other medications in for disposal, or call and someone will pick the medications up for disposal:

Caution: people who are going to bring their medications in themselves need to make sure to keep prescriptions in the prescription bottle until they drop them off to show proof the prescription is legitimately theirs.

People who call to have medications picked up can do so with no questions asked. The Sheriff's Office goal is to dispose of the items properly, not to catch people with illegal pills. Proper disposal of prescription and over the counter medications is important. Flushing them down the toilet or sink can introduce dangerous and environmentally damaging substances into the water system; throwing them away in the trash can also introduce them into the environment, and runs the risk of them winding up in the wrong hands. The medications collected by the Sheriff’s Office are safely burned in the Sheriff's Burn Unit.
