Medicine Disposal Drop Box


Beginning December 19, 2016, the North Richland Hills Police Department will provide 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, the new medication drop box has been installed in the police department’s jail lobby and will be 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 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.
