Colorado Household Medication Take Back Drop Box available at Brighton Police Department

The Brighton Police Department has installed a green collection receptacle in its lobby, located at 3401 E Bromley Lane. The Colorado Household Medication Take Back Drop Box program is administered through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and allows for public medication collection any time of the year during normal lobby business hours, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.

Most people don’t know what to do with their expired or unused medications. The collection receptacle is a free, year-round program that allows citizens an alternative to flushing or disposing medications in the trash, potentially causing a health or safety hazard.

Most household medications including vitamins, prescribed or over the counter drugs can be deposited unto the collection receptacle. Original containers may be used or placing pills in a zip-top big is the preferred method. If the original containers are used, please make sure to redact personal information. Do not deposit excessive packaging. Items not accepted include syringes, needles, mercury, pressurize containers or marijuana products.

This program is funded through a grant and is at no cost to the Brighton Police Department.
