Prescription drugs in homes are a health and safety issue because they can be accidentally consumed or stolen, misused and abused. It is a huge problem.
Please make your homes and medicine cabinets safe by disposing of expired, unneeded and unwanted prescription medications and other solids.
We've made it very easy to safely and properly dispose of your prescription meds. The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office runs "Operation Medicine Cabinet" and has provided three drop box sites county-wide. It's free and anonymous.
Simply collect the meds and head down to:
- The Sheriff's Office lobby in Libby
- The Troy Dispatch lobby
- The Eureka Dispatch lobby
Each lobby has a big green drop off box (pictured). Just drop the meds in the 'MedReturn' box - that's it!
These drop boxes are available 24/7 year-round, but please consider making it a point to check your house today and take any unwanted medications to one of the collection sites.
