Medication Disposal

The Village has a 24-hour available disposal bin for unused or expired medication. The green bin is located in the entrance of Village Hall in between the two sets of double doors.

Properly disposing of unused medicines is important to prevent abuse or poisoning. Storing unused medicines in the home poses safety and health threats. Prescription drug abuse is a growing problem, especially among teens. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (December 2014), prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse is 2nd, only to marijuana use.

Most commonly abused prescription drugs. If unused or unwanted, these are important drugs to remove from your home. Painkillers: Vicodin, Tylenol with codeine, OxyContin, Percocet. Depressants: Xanax, Valium, Nembutal. Stimulants: Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta.

Protect the environment. Medicines flushed down the drain or disposed of in the trash can contaminate bodies of water, harm wildlife and end up in drinking water supplies, not to mention the possibility of them getting into the wrong hands!

The Rockton Police Department has a secured medicine disposal box. Located in the vestibule of the Rockton Village Hall, 110 E. Main Street in Rockton, the 24 hour secured drop box can be accessed at any time, for your convenience.
