The City of Columbia's Medication Drop Box program provides a safe and anonymous way to dispose of unwanted and/or unused medications. By properly disposing of unused medications we reduce the misuse of prescription drugs in our community and pollution of our local water supply.
The Medication Drop Box is conveniently located downtown in the Columbia Police Department lobby, at 600 E. Walnut Street, and is available for use anytime, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
