The Grove City Division of Police, in partnership with the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI), Rx Drug Drop Box is located in the lobby of the Grove City Safety Complex, 3360 Park St. The drug drop box resembles a mailbox and is available for anonymous disposal of medicine any time of the day or night.
NADDI launched the program to significantly reduce easy access to prescriptions that are outdated or no longer needed. These drugs unfortunately are the target of theft by people who have access to the medicine cabinets of family and friends. America’s 12- to 17-year-olds have made prescription drugs their number one substance of abuse, and much of the supply is coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents and friends. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home. This is a way to legally and safely turn them over to law enforcement for eco-friendly destruction.
Prescription, pet and over-the-counter drugs including capsules, pills, powders, patches, herbs and vitamins are accepted, please place in a clear, sealed bag.
Needles, lancets, syringes, inhalers, aerosols, liquids, creams, pastes, Rx bottles and pill packaging are not permitted in the Drug Drop Box.
If you have items that we do not accept, visit the the United States Food and Drug Administration publishes guidelines on responsible disposal of liquid medicines, inhalers and sharps.
