Medications

Pills, tablets and capsules can be properly disposed through the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Office Rx Drug Drop Box Program. Residents can deposit unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs at drop boxes located at law enforcement agencies throughout Geauga & Trumbull Counties. To find a drop off location, visit www.RXdrugdropbox.com or call 2-1-1.

Needles and syringes are not accepted in the Drop Box. For proper disposal information, see Needles and Sharps.

Liquid medications are not accepted in the Sheriff's Rx Drop Box Program. Properly dispose of liquid medication by mixing it with something like coffee grounds, cat litter, dirt or sawdust to make it undesirable or unusable. Once the liquid is in unusable state, place it in the regular trash for proper disposal. Do not flush liquid medications into our sewer system or waterways.
