Appropriate disposal of expired, unused or unwanted medicines reduce the chance that youth or others may take them. This free environmental service also protects wildlife, pets and people by keeping flushed medicines out of our waterways.
The Harrison County Sheriff’s Department has partnered with the Harrison County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, and the Milltown Police Department to establish two drug drop off boxes for the citizens of Harrison County.
To build community awareness we plan to visit all schools within the county to promote drug safety. Our team also provides Drug Disposal literature to senior citizen housing complexes, school newsletters, radio stations, Harrison County Hospital newsletters, and multiple medical physicians’ offices within our community.
As of 2013 we have collected over 300 lbs of prescription and narcotic drugs, between the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and Milltown Police Department.
The following rules apply to the prescription drop off:
- Prescription medication needs to be in the original containers.
- Prescription liquids and Intra-venous, hypodermics, or other inject-able material will not be accepted due to blood-borne pathogens dangers.
- Place all items in the plastic bags provided at the drop off box.
Harrison County Residents can drop off their unwanted, unused, or expired medication at the following location:
Harrison County Sheriff’s Department
1445 Gardner Lane
Corydon, IN 47112
Hours: 24 hours Monday - Saturday
Please Note: Residents will need to enter the lobby area and make contact with a communications officer by pressing the intercom, in order to have access to the drop off container.
