Year Round Medication Drop Off Locations

The box is accessible to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. No needles, syringes or liquids are accepted.

Fox Metro Water Reclamation District

As increasing amounts of prescription drugs and personal care products (PPCPs) are being detected in U.S. rivers, waterways, and groundwater, Fox Metro Water Reclamation District offers The Medication Take-Back Program which allows residents of the District service area to bring their old, unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications in to be properly disposed.

*Sharps Disposal Information*

NEVER PLACE LOOSE NEEDLES AND SYRINGES IN THE TRASH!

Place sharps (needles) in either a sharps container or placed inside an empty detergent bottle.  Do not use a glass container.

Clearly label container “Do Not Recycle.”

Put sharps in point-first. Containers more than half-full should be disposed of. Store sharps in closed container with the cap screwed on.

If using a detergent bottle the lid must be tightly sealed with tape and the container clearly labeled “SHARPS”. The container or bottle can then be placed at the top of your trash container for collection with your regular refuse.
