Safe Disposal of Unused Prescriptions

Sheriff Cunningham with Drug BoxDid you know that the Bay County Sheriff’s Office/Bay County Law Enforcement Center in downtown Bay City has a prescription drug drop-box in the lobby? Simply drop unused prescription drugs in the red lock box during office hours, Monday through Friday, between 8am and 4:30pm.


No syringes or liquid medications, please.

Dispose of your unwanted, unused, or expired prescriptions safely to help prevent misuse and abuse. DO NOT throw away, flush, or otherwise dispose of medications!

Bay County Sheriff Troy Cunningham said it is especially important to dispose of unwanted prescription meds as the County is in the grips of a heroin epidemic, and addicts will frequently
look through medicine cabinets looking for opiate-based painkillers.
