Pharmaceutical Drug Disposal Program

The Miami County Sheriff’s Office now has a prescription drug drop-off box located in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office, 201 W. Main St., Troy. The box was received from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) which is a non-profit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of prescription drug diversion. The box was received free of charge through a grant.

The drug drop box will allow anyone to drop off unused prescription drugs at the Sheriff’s Office during normal business hours. There is no paperwork to complete and no one you need to speak with, simply drop your old or unused prescription pills in the box. The pills are destroyed in a manner that does not cause environmental harm by getting into our rivers, streams, and water table. By ridding one’s household of used or unwanted medications it also reduces the likelihood of young people having access to abuse them. We will also continue to partner with the Miami County Transfer Station hosting four drug-drop off dates a year with the next date being September 27, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Any items dropped off should be in pill or patch form only, no liquids or needles will be accepted.
