Pharmaceutical And Syringe Disposal

Drop BoxThe South San Francisco Police Department, along with the other police departments in the north county, now offer a drop box where you can deposit unwanted prescription drugs.

County Supervisor Adrienne Tissier began the project over one year ago. She found that many people were "flushing" old medications because they thought this was the safest way to dispose of them. In reality, this action has a great negative impact on the environment.

In order to resolve the problem, drop boxes have been installed in the lobbies of police departments throughout the north county. The boxes, similar to a mailbox, are painted white and clearly marked. The boxes are for prescription medications only.
