The Superior Police Department in conjunction with the Douglas County Sheriff's Department and the City of Superior Department of Public Works Environmental Services Division have teamed up to give residents a way to properly dispose of their unused medications.

The drop-box program is set to debut on Monday, December 3rd - and will be available from this point forward.

Residents who wish to dispose of their old medications can bring them to the Superior Police Department lobby at 1316 N 14th Street, Suite 150, and drop them into the bod that will be located there during normal business hours:  8:30AM to 4:30PM Monday through Friday.

The process is easy, confidential, and free.  Residents should cross out any identifying information on the packaging.  All over-the-counter medications - including pet medications - will be accepted.  Needles, syringes, lancets, and thermometers are not accepted at the drop box.

The program is designed to help keep unused medications from reaching our drinking water.  If medications are thrown away or flushed down the toilet, they can eventually reach the water table.

Residents with questions are asked to contact the Superior Police Deparment at 715-395-7234.
