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.

skills to improve both access and
quality of their healthcare. DAP provides an on-site
deaf advocate and American Sign Language (ASL)
