Medicine Disposal Drop Box

The Osseo Police Department has a medication drop box in collaboration with the Hennepin County Sheriffs Office and Partnership for Change.

The purpose of this program is for the proper disposal of unused or old medications. The storing of these unused medicaitons inside the home pose safety and health risks, esspecially among children and teens. The proper disposal of unused medicines is important as it prevents abuse, which has become a major problem among tee...nagers.

Another reason is to protect our environment. Medicines that are not disposed of properly, such as flushing down the toilet or placing in the garbage, can contaminate drinking water, get into our rivers and lakes, and even harm local wildlife.

If you have any old or unsued medications, please bring them in and place them into this green box. Once inside, the Osseo Police Department and Hennepin County Sheriffs Office will dispose of the medications at a safe/designated disposal site.

The following types of medications are accepted:
- Prescription medications, including controlled substances
- Over-the-Counter medicines
- Vitamins and Supplements
- Pet medicines

The following are not accepted:
- No needles, sharps or syringes
- No medicines from businesses
