Drop off Unwanted Medicines Safely, Anonymously & Easily
Many people have expired or unwanted medication cluttering their medicine cabinet that they don't know how to get rid of. Operation Medicine Drop is the safest and easiest way to dispose of unwanted medication.
The Jacksonville Center for Public Safety houses a permanent drop box for medication. Stop by the Department at 200 Marine Blvd. during regular business hours, 8-5 PM, Monday-Friday to utilize the drop box.
Periodically, Jacksonville Public Safety will assist in organizing an "Operation Medicine Drop" event at various locations in the City where citizens may get rid of their unused medicine. Follow us on Facebook to stay updated on when and where these events will be taking place.
Make Our Community Safer
By using Operation Medicine Drop to dispose of unwanted medication, you are helping to protect our community. Flushing medicines down the the toilet or pouring them into the sink can be dangerous for humans, animals and the environment. We will make sure this medicine is disposed of properly and that it will not be used by others. Drop off is free and anonymous. Thank you for being an active participant in our mission to keep our community safe and healthy!
