Prescription Drug Drop Box

A huge thank you to the Big Lake-Becker Knights of Columbus for funding drug drop boxes for the Cities of Big Lake and Becker, and Smart Signz of St. Cloud for their donation of the graphics.

Time & Location

The Big Lake drop box has been installed and is ready to accept your expired, excess, or unused prescription drugs. It is located at the lobby of the Big Lake Police Department located at 790 Minnesota Avenue. It will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or after hours by contacting an on duty Officer. Please take a moment to look in your medicine cabinet and bring in whatever is no longer used. We will not accept syringes, fluids, drug paraphernalia, or medications being disposed of by commercial medical facilities.


Removing unused drugs from your medicine cabinet ensures they will not fall into the hands of those who should not have them, including children. In addition, proper disposal of unused drugs ensures they will not end up in a landfill or waterway, causing additional harm to our environment.
