Medication Drop Box

FinalBoxPhotoPrescription drug drop-off is available Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

A permanent drop-box in the department lobby (1117 Jackson St. SE) is available for drop off and safe disposal of any unwanted or expired over-the-counter or prescription medications (including pet medications).

Personnel will collect and destroy the medications in a safe and legal manner by incinerating them at a nearby facility. 

The drop box was donated by the United States Postal Service and refurbished by Oregon Powder Coating, Albany Lock and Key Service, and Xtreme Grafx.
