Where can I dispose of prescription medication?

Category: Police Department
The Lewiston Police Department does accept unused prescription drugs for disposal. The investigations section placed a prescription drug turn in box in the lobby of the Police Department for use by the public. The idea behind the prescription drug turn in box is to allow for the safe disposal of unused medications. Proper disposal keeps medications from contaminating our waterways (flushing them down the toilet) and more importantly out of the hands of our youth and others who might steal them from a loved one’s medicine cabinet. The following items will be accepted: unfilled prescription slips, prescriptions drugs, patches, ointments, samples, and medication for pets. The following items ARE NOT ACCEPTED: syringes, liquids, bio-hazards, and inhalers. No illegal drugs are accepted through this drop off. If you have questions you can call the Police Department at (208)746-0171.
