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.
