Prescription Drug Drop - Off
Prescription drug abuse is currently being reported by law enforcement agencies across the country as their greatest threat. In addition, unsafe disposal of prescription and over-the-counter medications is costly to the environment.
These unused drugs present opportunities for environmental contamination, drug abuse and accidental poisonings. Proper disposal through collection is necessary to insure the drugs are completely destroyed by incineration.
To combat the illicit use of prescription medications and protect the environment, the Mayville Police Department provides citizens with a safe and easy way to dispose of all expired, unused or unwanted medications.
The Mayville Police Department provides a safe way to dispose of expired, unused or unwanted medication by providing a drug drop off box in the lobby of the police department. Open to the public, Mon - Fri from 8:00am - 4:30pm.
