Prescription Drop-Off Box

Do you have old, leftover or expired medications around your house? You can safely dispose of these medications without harming the environment. Prescription Drug Drop Boxes are located at the Bay Village, Fairview Park, Lakewood, North Olmsted, Rocky River and Westlake Police Departments. Any medications with the EXCEPTION of liquids or syringes can be dropped off. Simply blackout your information with a permanent marker or remove the labels. This effort helps with the prevention of prescription drug abuse and crime and also helps keep our environment safe. Contact your local police department for more information.
