Anoka County law enforcement provides a safe way to dispose of drugs and protect water resources

Don’t flush prescription drugs (or other dangerous chemicals) down the drain. Prescription drugs have the potential to pollute local water resources (groundwater and the Mississippi River) – the source of our drinking water. Proper disposal will not only keep dangerous drugs from being abused but also prevent harm to water and wildlife (e.g. fish and ducks).   Safely and properly dispose of your prescription drugs.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office along with its law enforcement partners (Blaine, Centennial Lakes, Columbia Heights, Fridley, and St. Francis Police Departments), provide a lobby Prescription Drug Take Back drop box to dispose of unused or unwanted prescription drugs. Participation in the Take Back is free and anonymous. All prescriptions will be accepted and destroyed so that they are not abused or pollute local water resources.

No syringes, needles, or other hazardous materials will be accepted. The Prescription Drug Take Back program will operate during lobby hours, Monday through Friday. The program is located at participating city offices and the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office (13301 Hanson Blvd. NW in Andover, MN 55304). For more information contact the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office at 763-323-5000.
