Dump the Drugs

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office and Flagstaff Police Department have installed a secure pharmaceutical drug collection drop-box inside the lobby of the Law Enforcement Administrative Facility, 911 E. Sawmill Rd, Flagstaff, AZ. Community members are welcome to come to the front of the facility where unwanted medications may be turned in anonymously. This collection box is not intended for the use of physicians or other businesses who already have established procedures and existing resources for the disposal of unwanted or expired pharmaceuticals.
Coconino County Sheriff's Office Flagstaff Police drug box drop off
Unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs can present substantial risks to our community by either falling into the wrong hands, or by damaging our environment through improper disposal. It is this awareness that has resulted in the Flagstaff Police Department, Coconino County Sheriff’s Department and other participating law enforcement agencies to provide a safe alternative method to dispose of unwanted pharmaceuticals.

Medications inside a standard prescription bottle or over the counter package may be deposited into the drop box in those containers. Loose medication can be put into plastic bags available at the collection box and then deposited. Please ensure any liquid medication is enclosed in secure containers and placed in a plastic bag before depositing. Please note that syringes or other sharp objects should not be placed in the drop box under any circumstances, as it creates a hazardous situation for personnel that will be emptying the drop box. Once collected, evidence and police staff will ensure the medication is disposed of according to State and Federal laws.

You no longer have to wait for the semi-annual “Dump the Drugs Day” - We are happy to provide this year round solution to properly and safely dispose of prescription drugs.
