The Chattanooga Police Department is now able to accept expired, unused or unneeded prescription medications from the general public. There is a large Drop Box for disposal in the lobby of the Property Division, located at 3204 Amnicola Highway.
The Property Room Technicians will assist with the disposal process. Anyone can take in old prescriptions, seven days a week, during normal business hours (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).
The program aims to keep dangerous substances out of our landfills and drinking water. Proper disposal of old medications is one way to help reach this goal.
If anyone has questions about the program, please call Property Division at 423 643-5153.
