Unused and expired prescription drugs can be disposed of safely at the Garfield Heights Police Station. The county-wide Prescription Drug Drop Box program is helping keep prescription drugs out of landfills and water sources. The dropbox is located in the lobby of the police station and is accessible 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
What Can & Cannot be Disposed
According to Police Chief Rovert Byrne,
Anyone can drop off any unneeded or outdated prescription medication, no questions asked. Needles, liquids or other medical waste is not accepted. Cuyahoga County purchased the boxes for any police department that requested one. The Cuyahoga County Sheriffs department helps collect and weigh the drugs and is responsible for record-keeping of what is being disposed.
