Prescription Drug Deposit Box
Q: Where can I dispose of prescription drugs?
Recology Ashland Sanitary partnered with the Ashland police department to bring a new prescription drug deposit box to the City of Ashland. The prescription drug deposit box, which has been placed in the lobby of the Ashland police department, was built and donated by Recology Ashland Sanitary. In addition, Recology Ashland Sanitary provided the sign that is mounted on the wall above the box.
The prescription drug deposit box will allow citizens the opportunity to drop off the following items in a secure box.
- Over the counter Medications
- Medication Samples
- Medications for pets
- Liquid medication in glass or leak proof containers.
The following items WILL NOT be accepted in the box.
- Needles (sharps)
- Bloody or infectious waste
- Medications from businesses or clinics
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Aerosol cans or inhalers
- Food items
The best time to drop off your items are during business hours.
Installing this box will assist with keeping prescription medicines away from children, out of landfills, our water supply, and waste treatment systems.
