If you’ve got old medicines you’re not using, we’ve got the prescription for safe disposal.
Turn in your prescription drugs between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the St. Peters Justice Center, 1020 Grand Teton Dr. The Justice Center is located at the corner of Grand Teton Drive and Suemandy Drive near Mid Rivers Mall. As part of the National Rx Take Back Event, you can turn in your medications, no questions asked, at no cost to you.
The U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency is coordinating the National Rx Take Back Event. The St. Peters Police Department is participating in the event because unused medication is a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. By dropping off your unused prescription medicines, you eliminate the possibility of the drugs harming someone else or getting into the wrong hands.
Police cannot accept any medications before or after the event, so be sure to drop off your drugs between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. This service is for prescription medicines only, not over-the-counter drugs.
The service is free and anonymous. You can turn in medications that are out-of-date or medicines you no longer need or use. Intravenous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted. Illegal substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative. If you’re worried about anonymity, remove identifying information from prescription medicine container labels before disposal.
Tightly seal the cap on any liquid product, such as cough syrup.
