Discard Unused Rx Pills At CCSO

The public can now discard their unused medication at the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

CCSO and Drug Free Collier have partnered to offer a permanent site where people can dispose of their unwanted or expired prescription drugs.

People can dispose of their bottles and pills - no questions asked - in a lock box, located in the first floor main lobby at CCSO headquarters, Building J, 3301 U.S. 41 E., East Naples.

The white box has the CCSO logo on it and says “Prescription Drop Off Box.” The public can discard unused medication in this box from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays

The box is monitored.

Medication, including liquids, must be placed in a bottle or container before being placed in the vault.

CCSO will take the appropriate measures to dispose of the medicine.
