Prescription Medicine Drop Off Available

The City of Green Cove Springs Police Department is pleased to announce a new resource for the City.  Clay Action Coalition is sponsoring a prescription drug drop box known as Med Return, now in the lobby of the Police Department, located at 205 Spring Street, Green Cove Springs, FL.

The drop box is available for prescription pills and capsules, prescription patches, prescription medications and prescription ointments (as long as the lid is securely in place), over the counter medications, vitamins, and pet prescriptions.

Prohibited items include, general ointments, liquids, lotions, inhalers, thermometers, hydrogen peroxide, medicine from businesses or clinics, aerosol cans and sharps such as needles.

This drop box is available 24 hours a day, and we ask citizens to feel free to bring their old and unused medications and drop them off in a safe, convenient location.  We ask our citizens not flush medications down the toilet as they contaminate our ground water.
