Needle & Medical Disposal

Properly disposing of expired or no-longer-needed medicines, as well as used medical needles, keeps our waterways and community clean. The Safety Center/Police Department lobby is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and contains a prescription pill turn-in container as well as a separate container for medical sharps. To utilize these disposal sites, remember:

  • Pills cannot be put in with any packaging. Remove them from the bottle before depositing them into the container.
  • Before throwing away your empty pill bottle, black out your name and any other personal information or remove label.
  • Syringes deposited in the Sharps container MUST be empty. We do not collect syringes with any liquid/medications inside them.

If you need assistance, ask at the Records or Dispatch desks.
