We make it easy for you to get rid of those drugs – just stop by the Clayton Law Enforcement Center at 315 East Second Street and drop them in the drug disposal box right in the lobby.
Although legally prescribed drugs serve a useful medical purpose, they can be deadly if they get into the wrong hands and are misused. Cleaning out medicine cabinets and safely disposing of old prescription and over-the-counter drugs can save lives.
The types of drugs that people have dropped off include common over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen and Nyquil as well as Ben-Gay cream, vitamins, suppositories, and caffeine pills. The most frequently surrendered controlled substances include Alphamethadol, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Oxycodone, Ketamine, Testosterone, Alprozolam, Clonazepam, Prozac, Valium, Ritalin, among thousands of other pills.
The disposal box is intended to make the community safer, prevent potential misuse and to protect the environment. The only items that we can NOT accept are syringes and liquids.
