The City is participating in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, October 28. Residents can bring unused or expired medications to the Coronado Police Department at 700 Orange Avenue between 10 am to 2 pm. Just pull up in front of the Police Station and staff will collect the medications.
Residents can also use the prescription drug box located inside the Police Department year-round during regular business hours.
The drop box provides a safe location for residents to properly dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription medications. Removing unwanted, unused, and expired prescription medications from homes reduces access to potentially addictive medications for accidental or intentional misuse or theft. Residents can anonymously place their unused prescription medications into the drop box during business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm). The drop box and sharps container are located in the lobby of the police department.
- Prescription medications in containers or prescription bottles can be placed directly into the drop box.
- Prescription medications without containers should be placed into plastic bags prior to placement in the drop box. Plastic zip lock style bags will be available to assist citizens with this process.
- Any containers of liquid must be completely sealed.
- Syringes should not be placed into the drop box. A sharps container will be available next to the drop box for syringe collection.
