Public Notice: Unwanted, unused drug drop off service now available
The Base Provost Marshal Office has installed a drug drop off box in Bldg. 3 adjacent to the Desk Sergeant's office to assist with removing potentially dangerous controlled substances from the medicine cabinets of our supported community. This will provide the public the opportunity to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications (including over-the-counter) for destruction year round. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety from accidental poisonings and groundwater contamination. Participants do not need to give their names, and it's advisable to remove identifying information, including names, addresses, and prescription numbers, from any bottles or packages you turn in.
Please keep in the mind the following before collecting your medications for disposal:
- The program is free & anonymous.
- Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.
- Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.
- Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
- Conceal or remove any personal information, including Rx number, on the empty containers by covering it with black permanent marker or by scratching it off.
Medications may be dropped off 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have questions, please call 910-451-4688.
