Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box

The Polk County Sheriff's Office teamed up with some local city governments to offer Polk County residents a new way to dispose of their unwanted prescription


Residents can find Drug Drop-Off Box in the lobby of Grimes City Hall.

Tossing or flushing your unwanted prescription medications is not the best option. People desperate enough will rummage through garbage for drugs, and flushing them down the toilet can contaminate our water supply. The drop-off boxes provide a more secure option for disposal, and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office ensures all accepted items are properly disposed of.

Prescription medication in the form of pills, tablets, ointments, creams, powders, liquid medications, supplements, vitamins, inhalers, and pet medicine are accepted. Items must be placed in a sealed zip-top baggie, (available at City Hall)  prior to dropping them off.
