Prescription Drug Disposal

A drop bin is located in the community service desk lobby. Pills should be placed into a bag. Zip lock bags are ideal since they can be sealed. The bags are then placed into a secure drop slot. You can only drop off medications during the Community Service Desk operating hours on Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
