Drug Collection Unit
It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet! Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.
You can anonymously dispose of all your unwanted and expired medication 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at no cost to you. The Roanoke Police Department has a Drug Collection Unit in the police department lobby located at 609 Dallas Drive.
