The Big Lake Police Department is pleased to provide a drop box for you to dispose of your expired, excess, or unused prescription drugs. Our drop box is conveniently located in the lobby of the Big Lake Police Department, located at 790 Minnesota Avenue. Our lobby is open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please take a moment to look in your medicine cabinet and bring in whatever is no longer used. We will not accept syringes, 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.
