Prescription Drug Drop-Off

In response to the growing demand for a safe and convenient way to dispose of household prescription medications, the San Diego Police Department has installed a drop-box at seven of its locations listed below.

The Safe Prescription Drug Drop-Off Program is available to all residents to drop off unused or expired prescriptions - no questions asked.

Police officers will check the boxes daily, collect the contents and prepare for disposal that is eco-friendly and in accordance with Federal and State laws.

This program helps protect the environment and deter the use of prescription drugs by unintended persons.

Drop-Off Guidelines

  • This program is for household medications only. Businesses are not eligible.
  • Pour non-liquid prescription medication into a Ziplock-style bag and discard the plastic bottles. 
  • All needles and sharps should be placed into a rigid, puncture-resistant container 1 gallon or less in size with a tight-fitting lid. Do not use milk jugs, glass containers, cardboard boxes, paper or plastic bags, or CRV containers.
