Cleaning your medicine chest is very important, but a task that is often procrastinated. It’s easier to leave the unwanted, unused medications in their bottles where they sit, rather than to figure out how and where to dispose of them legally and properly. The Superior Police Department has had a drop box at their facility that allows residents to bring their in their unused prescription medication.  If you haven’t used it, learn more below or consider bringing them in to the the Prescription Drug Disposal Clinic this Saturday.

There use to be a time when people would just flush their unwanted medications down the toilet, but that is environmentally unhealthy, they should NOT be flushed or dropped into the garbage can.  But, according to the experts, by keeping unwanted pharmaceuticals, it can lead to theft, prescription drug abuse, and accidental poisoning.

This Saturday, April 26th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Superior Police Department (SPD) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give you the opportunity to rid your home of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Simply bring your pills for disposal to the SPD parking lot at 1316 N. 14th Street. Citizens may dispose of solid (pill) medication by removing it from its container and disposing of it directly into the box provided at the collection site. Blister packages will be accepted without the medications being removed. Liquid medications will be accepted but must remain in the original packaging.

Please note that Inhalers and needles WILL NOT be accepted. Law Enforcement will not handle any pills or bottles so the person bringing the medications to the disposal site must dump them in the collection box provided. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Remember, you can also look for the pharmaceutical drop box at the City of Superior Police Department. They will take household’s prescription and over-the-counter medication in any form. However, again, please note that syringes,needles, and thermometers are NOT allowed.
