MAPLEWOOD POLICE DEPARTMENT MEDICATION DISPOSAL BOX
The Maplewood Police Department provides a public receptacle for unwanted or expired prescription medications from Maplewood households. The police department does not accept medications from a physician’s office or healthcare facilities. Those establishments are required to use separate disposal services.
The medication drop box is located in the lower level lobby of the City of Maplewood Municipal Complex at 7601 Manchester Road, and is accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays.
Accepted items include:
• Expired or unwanted prescription medications
• Unwanted tablets or capsules
• Veterinary medications
• Over the counter medications including vitamins
Unacceptable items include:
Needles or syringes
Bio-hazard or infectious waste
Aerosol cans or inhalers
Hydrogen peroxide or alcohol
Loose tablets or capsules (please place items in a container before placing in drop box)
The police department will properly dispose of all collected medications. Contact the administrative police sergeant at 314-646-3617 for further information.
