Medication Drop-Off

The goal of the medication drop-box program is to keep unused/unwanted medications out of our water supply and out of the hand of individuals who might abuse them.

The St. Joseph Government Center has a drop-off location that is available to the public 24/7 and it is located on the western side of the building.

  • If medications are in a glass container, put them in a padded envelope
  • You do NOT need to remove any identifying labels from the bottles. Privacy is of the highest importance and the labels are never viewed.
  • For large quantities, please call 320-259-3700 to arrange disposal
  • This program is for household use, not commercial. Businesses should contact their waste management vendor for medication disposal information.
  • Sharps are not accepted
