Prescription Drug drop Box
The Moffat County Sheriff's Office offers an official, safe disposal site for unused or expired household medication in the front lobby at the Public Safety Center, located at 800 West 1st Street, Craig CO. The dropbox was provided through the Colorado Household Medication Take-Back Program, administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. Both prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as vitamins, can be disposed of in the dropbox. The average American household has four pounds of both prescription and over-the-counter medications. The abundance of medication creates opportunities for misuse and abuse, which can have serious, even deadly results. This is the safest option for disposing of unused medications. If you flush them or dump them down the drain, they can enter the environment, contaminate drinking water, and affect people and wildlife.
