Medication Drop-Off: Prescription & Over-the-Counter
DO NOT FLUSH MEDICATIONS DOWN THE TOILET. Although this was a practice used in the past, new studies show that prescription and over-the-counter drugs are not completely removed when passing through waste water treatment plants. Harm to marine and plant life can be caused by improper disposal. Please bring any unused or expired prescription drugs and other over-the-counter medications to a local medication drop-off location for proper disposal.
Medication Drop-Off (NO SHARPS) at Sheriff's Department West Valley Patrol Station
|Location||1601 S De Anza Blvd|
|Hours||Mon - Fri, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.|
Drop unused prescription or over-the-counter medication in the drop box in the lobby. No sharps allowed. (See below for how to dispose of sharps).
DO NOT THROW SHARPS IN THE TRASH. State law prohibits a person from placing home-generated sharps in their trash or recycling containers. Home-generated sharps are defined as disposable hypodermic needles, syringes, lancets, and other medical devices used for self-injection or blood test. Properly disposing of your used sharps will help protect your family, community, the public and environment.
