What Do I Do With Old Medications?
Next time you clean out your medicine cupboard and find unwanted, unused or expired medications, bring them to the Coon Rapids Police Department at 11155 Robinson Drive to safely dispose of them!
A disposal bin is located in the Police Department lobby, accessible during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m-4 p.m.
They accept prescription, over the counter and pet medication from households. Pills, liquids and lotions are all acceptable.
They do not accept used needles, sharps, IV bags, liquid chemotherapy drugs, medical equipment or illegal drugs.
If you have loose medication, please make sure to package it in a sealable plastic bag, preferably double bagged to prevent them from spilling open.
Safely disposing of medications keeps them from falling into the wrong hands and from polluting our water systems. Thank you for doing your part!
