Medicine Disposal

Safely dispose of unused medicines in the green drop box in the Golden Valley Police Department lobby at 7700 Golden Valley Rd. Proper disposal of medicines helps prevent abuse and poisoning and protects the environment.

Medicines accepted will include prescription medicines, controlled substances, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins and supplements, and pet medicines. No syringes, sharps, or other medical waste will be accepted.
