Medicine Disposal Drop Box

Drug Box and staff

The North Richland Hills Police Department provides our community with a safe, effective, and convenient way to dispose of unwanted prescription or non-prescription medications. 

Prescription drug abuse has proven to be among the top concerns of parents and law enforcement alike. As a proactive measure, a medication drop box has been installed in the police department’s jail lobby and is available to the public 24 hours a day/7 days a week to provide a geographically convenient location for citizens to discard dangerous and abuse prone substances otherwise stored in the home. The jail is located at 4301 City Point Drive on the far east end of the building.

Drug Bin

Citizens can drop-off unused or expired medication in the green Drug-Bin located inside the Jail lobby. There is also a Sharps container for disposing of used syringes connected to the drug bin. These are available to NRH residents only, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.

The following items are NOT allowed in the collection container:

  • Liquids
  • Inhalants
  • IV Bags
  • Thermometers & other mercury items
  • Personal Hygiene items
  • Needles (deposit in Sharps container)
  • Aerosols
  • Hydrogen Peroxide
  • Empty Medication containers
  • Trash

The drop box was provided free of charge to the citizens of North Richland Hills through our partnership with the Challenge of Tarrant County supporting our fight against drug abuse.
