The Grapevine Police Department has installed a secure Drug Drop Box in the Records area of the lobby inside the Public Safety Building at 1007 Ira E. Woods. Once you enter the lobby, the Records door is to the left. The drop box is directly on the left side (by the windows). The drop box will allow residents a free, safe and anonymous way to dispose any unused or expired medications 24 hours a day. The drop box is not intended for the use of business, pharmacies, clinics, doctor's offices or any facility that distributes medications. If you show up after lobby hours, simply use the call button in the walkway, and someone will let you inside the lobby.
Acceptable and unacceptable forms of medications available for drop off are listed below.
Acceptable Medications - Prescriptions, Pet Meds, Prescription Patches and Vitamins.
Why residents should turn in their unused prescription drugs:
• Medications that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to misuse and abuse.
• Drugs can be scavenged and illegally sold.
• Unused pharmaceuticals are environmental toxins; flushing them down the toilet or sink can release
them into our drinking water and soil.
