The Inver Grove Heights Police Department, in partnership with Dakota County, have teamed together to offer the public a place to dispose of prescription drugs safely and anonymously.

The drop box is clearly marked and located just outside the Police Department office door inside City Hall, 8150 Barbara Avenue.
  • The closest entryway is on the west side of City Hall. The drop box is accessible during Police Department business hours, Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

How to Drop Off Your Medicine

  • Drop-off is safe and anonymous. No ID is required and no questions will be asked.
  • Keep medicines in their original container and place them in a sealed, clear plastic bag (pills can remain in their blister packs).
  • Use a marker to cross out your name on the medicine containers.
  • Place medicine that is no longer in its original container in a clear plastic bag and write the name of the medicine on the bag.

Medicines Accepted from Households:

  •  Medicines from households are accepted in any form, including prescription, over-the-counter, and pet medications.
  •  No medicines from businesses, including health care facilities, long-term care facilities, pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and veterinary clinics can be accepted.
