Do you have Unwanted or Expired medications?
In coordination with the D.E.A., the Sandy Police Department participates in the Utah Take Back Efforts with our own Drug Take Back Box.
Our Drug Take Back box is available for residential safe disposal of prescription and non prescription medications. Our collection box provides a secure drop off location to properly dispose of your unwanted and/or expired medications. Proper disposal of your medications will help to reduce the nationwide threat of prescription drug abuse, and proper disposal keeps them out of our water supplies.
The following items can be disposed of in our collection box: prescription medicines, over the counter medicines, vitamins, pet medicines, medicated ointments and lotions, inhalers, liquid medicines in glass or leak-proof containers (up to 12 ounces), and medicine samples.
We also have a sharps container for the disposal of preloaded syringes. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any used syringes or chemo medications of any kind, and commercial use of our collection box is prohibited.
Our Drug Take Back collection box is located in the Sandy Police Department main lobby, and is available for drop-offs Monday-Friday, from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.
