The City of Nassau Bay Police Department Installs Drop Box for Prescription Drugs

The City of Nassau Bay Police Department has gone one step further when it comes to the question of “What to do with expired/un-needed medications?” There is now no need for Nassau Bay citizens to wait for the bi-yearly “Take it Back” event. The Police Department has installed a new prescription drop box in the Nassau Bay Municipal Bldg, located at 1800 Space Park Drive, Suite 200, in Nassau Bay.

The drop box was purchased from the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) and is part of a program designed to significantly reduce the prescription drugs in American homes that are either no longer needed or outdated. By properly disposing these medications, there is a reduction of polluting natural waterways and drinking water when they are not trashed in our landfills. Using drop boxes also limit the possibility of prescription drugs getting into the wrong hands and accidental poisoning.

Items can be dropped off during normal business hours (Monday-Thursday 7:30am - 5:30pm & Friday 7:30am – 11:30am) or anytime of the day by contacting the Police Department Communications Office at 281-333-4200 x1. All medications collected will be properly disposed of by the Nassau Bay Police Department. For questions or comments, please contact the Nassau Bay Police Department at 281-333-2212.
