Medication Drop Box Program

The Wappingers Falls Police Department participates in the Dutchess County Prescription Medication Drop Box Program.

Residents can anonymously dispose of unused, unwanted, prescription medications and controlled substances.

Recognizing that more than 70% of the abused prescription medications are obtained from friends or relatives, the medication drop box program is open to the public to safely dispose of unused/unwanted medications keeping these harmful substances out of the environment, as well as, the hands of those who would abuse them.

The drop box is located in the police department lobby and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Medicines deposited into the drop boxes should be in sealed containers/plastic bags. Any unused prescription medications, over the counter medicines, and inhalers may be disposed of.

Liquid medications and needles/Sharps are not accepted, and Pharmacies and medical providers are not allowed to take part in the program.
