Prescription Drug Drop Box

Town residents looking to dispose of excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications can visit the safe, anonymous and secure permanent drop-off location at the Monroe Police Department anytime it is convenient for them.

The Monroe Police Department has established this permanent drug collection box as a way to reduce the supply of drugs that can be potentially harmful to kids, the water supply and landfills.

Monroe is among the first area towns to provide a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way to collect unwanted or expired household medication, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and unused pharmaceuticals. Monroe residents won’t have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.

Location: Monroe Police Headquarters (Lobby), 7 Fan Hill Road, Monroe CT 06468
