Medication Disposal

Citizens looking to dispose of unwanted, excess and expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications can use the safe, anonymous and secure permanent drop off box located in the lobby of the Darien Police Department. Properly disposing unwanted drugs is everyone’s responsibility as a matter of public health and safety. 

The lobby of Darien Police Headquarters is open to the public, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Discarded items are processed as “abandoned property” and safely incinerated. They can be dropped off free with no questions asked and no forms to fill out! Please, do not bring liquid medication or needles!

If you have unused Rx medications that you would like to dispose of safely, but you are a homebound Darien resident, click here.
