We encourage our citizens to take advantage of the opportunity to keep medicine cabinet’s clean and excess prescriptions and over-the-counter medications out of the hands of our adolescents as well as out of our water supply, through safe and secure disposal. To learn more about our Drug Drop Box click on the link below or stop by the Kimberling City Police Department collection units during given hours to drop off your unused and unwanted medications.
Stone County citizens looking to get rid of their unused, unwanted, or expired medications can visit the permanent drop box location in the lobby of the Kimberling City Police Department during office hours. Depositing medications into the drop boxes is simple, it is anonymous (no questions asked) and no paperwork required.
Hours: Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
1). Children and animals may be poisoned if they find and swallow drugs.
2). Drugs can be scavenged and illegally sold.
3). Unused pharmaceuticals are environmental toxins; flushing them down the toilet or sink can release them into our drinking water and soil.
Medications flushed down the toilet are ending up in our drinking water. Water treatment facilities are not designed to remove medications. Medications are also affecting fish and other aquatic life after treatment facilities return the water to streams and rivers.
