Needle & Medical Disposal
Expired, unwanted, and/or unneeded pills and sharps can be dropped of at the Police Department for safe and proper disposal.

Located in the Police Department lobby at the Safety Center is a prescription pill turn-in container and a separate container for medical sharps available to the public 24/7. If you need assistance, ask the at Records or Dispatch desks. 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.
