Drug Disposal Box
The Gresham Police Department has installed a permanent drop box where residents can safely dispose of expired or unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
“No questions will be asked about who the prescription was made out to or the type or amount brought in,” said Chief Craig Junginger. “This is a public safety issue. We want to keep unused prescription drugs from being misused and we also want help keep them out of our water supply.”
The drop box is located in the lobby of the Gresham Police Department located at 1333 NW Eastman Parkway. Drugs may be dropped off Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Individuals that bring drugs to dispose of in the drop box are asked to remove or mark out any personal information on the container such as name, phone number, and prescription number prior to turning them in.
