Prescription Drug Drop Box

Prescription Drug Drop Box Information

In November of 2011, the Eagle Point Police Department unveiled a permanent prescription drug drop box in the lobby of the police department at 17 S. Buchanan Ave. You can drop off your medications between the hours of 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

The following items are accepted: prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, medication samples, medication for pets, ointments, lotions and liquid medications that are contained within a leak proof container.

The following items are NOT accepted: Needles (sharps), thermometers, bloody or infectious waste, medications from businesses/clinics/pharmacies/hospitals, hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans and inhalers.

The idea behind this project is to get unused and expired prescriptions/medications out of the medicine cabinet in hopes of reducing the risk of abuse/theft, in addition to keeping medications out of our water and waste treatment systems.
