Sheriff invites residents to dispose of unwanted meds

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison recently announced “Medication Drop Boxes” have been permanently installed at two Sheriff’s Office locations.

Medication drop boxes have been permanently installed at two Sheriff’s Office locations. The drop boxes are designed to securely receive prescription and over-the-counter medications that are expired or no longer needed. However, liquids, needles and syringes are not accepted.

“I believe these boxes will provide a great service and benefit to the citizens of Wake County,” Sheriff Donnie Harrison said. “Medications that might otherwise end up in landfills or go into the wrong hands can now be disposed of safely.”

The drop boxes are located at the John H. Baker Public Safety Center, 330 S. Salisbury St., Raleigh and the Wake County Law Enforcement Training Center, 2300 Law Enforcement Drive, Raleigh. They are accessible on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., excluding county holidays.
