Brentwood’s Prescription Drug Drop Box

Prescription drugs save lives. If they are misused, however, they can also destroy them. Therefore, proper disposal of unused prescription medicine is not just the right thing to do, it’s a civic duty. Fortunately, here in Brentwood, that duty is now made much easier with the City Hall Drug Drop Box, located at 5211 Maryland Way. It’s a safe and convenient way to get rid of prescription medicines. Set up in January 2018, the drop box collected 954 pounds of prescription drugs last year alone, an average of nearly 80 pounds of drugs a month that can no longer find their way into the wrong hands or, via landfills, into our water supply. The drop box is available 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, and is in an area under video camera surveillance in the front lobby. Accepted items include pet medications, liquid medicines in leak-proof containers and inhalers. Items not accepted include any illegal drugs, needles, IV bags or thermometers. Drop-off is free, and no forms are required.
