Drug Take-Back


Prescription drug abuse is currently being reported by law enforcement agencies across the country as their greatest threat. In addition, unsafe disposal of prescription and over-the-counter medications is costly to the environment.

In response to the growing demand for a safe and convenient way to dispose of household prescription medications, there is a drop-off box located in Green River Police Department lobby where residents can drop off unused or expired prescriptions- no questions asked.

We also participate in the DEA Drug Take-Back event. The bi-annual ( April, October) National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

These programs not only help to protect the environment, but they can also deter the usage of prescription drugs by unintended parties.

No Sharps Allowed

We ask that only prescription medication be placed into the Dropbox.

Sharps are not accepted at our location but can be taken to Castle Rock Medical Center as long as they are properly packaged in a sealed sharps container.
