Prescription Drug Take Back Service

The Lafayette Police Department can accept your unwanted prescription medications and assure their proper disposal year-round.  No more waiting for designated drug take back events.

​Medications accepted include most prescription medications, patches, ointments, vitamins, over-the-counter medications, pet medications and unused injection cartridges/syringes if they are safely protected.  Items which cannot be accepted are used or unprotected syringes, thermometers, oxygen containers, inhalers, aerosol cans, liquids containing hydrogen peroxide, chemotherapy or radioactive substances and illicit drugs.

​Protect others and the environment by bringing unwanted prescription drugs to the Lafayette Police Department Records Division during normal business hours, Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM, excluding holidays, for safe destruction.  There is no charge for this service.
