Permanent Medication Collection Box Now in the PD Lobby
In an effort to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, the Parker Police Department is now a permanent site for a Medication Collection Box. You can now drop off your unused or expired medications in the front lobby of the Parker Police Department.
The decision to add this service for Parker residents year round was due to the many requests we had for this service and large demand during National Prescription Drug Take Day. We have been working in conjunction with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to set up this service. The state funded program expanded with the goal to establish a permanent collection location in every Colorado County. The only cost to the Parker Police Department is the time of the employee(s) assisting with collection duties. The supplies, disposal contractors and collection box itself is at no cost to the department.
The Medication Collection Box is available to the public during normal business hours, Mon - Fri 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sat – Sun 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The success of the program depends on proper use. Here is a list of items that can or cannot be accepted:
