Prescription Drop Box

A safe and convenient way to dispose of household prescription medications, Avon police Department in partnership with University Hospitals, CVS and the Lorain County Drug Task Force has installed a drop-box for both prescription medication and hypodermic needles in the lobby of the Avon Police Department.  

This program not only helps to protect the environment, it can deter the usage of prescription drugs by unintended parties - including young people facing peer pressure and new ways to "get high." The program strives to be proactive in enhancing public safety and saving lives.
