The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office will collect unwanted medications at the St. Mary’s County Fair from September 21 – September 24, 2017. Residents are encouraged to drop off their unwanted medications to uniformed officers at the drop-boxes located next to the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Command Post.

This take back effort ensures that medications in our community are disposed of properly. Proper disposal of prescription medications helps protect you, your family and the environment. Avoid health problems that occur from accidentally taking the wrong medicine, too much of the same medicine, or medicine that has expired.

Additionally, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office hosts a medication drop-off program 24 hours a day, seven days a week at our headquarters in Leonardtown. Through this program, residents may safely dispose of unused or expired medications in the collection boxes. All deposits through the program are completely anonymous.

The Sheriff’s Office accepts all forms of medications – except for syringes.
