New Drug Drop Box

Drug Drop Box

The Thornton Police Department is pleased to announce that we have a new Prescription Drug Drop Off box located in our lobby. The drug drop box was provided by the KidCents and The Rite Aid Foundation. The KidCents and Rite Aid Foundation are committed to supporting a safe environment for children in our communities by helping to reduce the misuse of medications by adolescents and accidental childhood poisonings.

The Safe Medication Disposal Program advances that mission by providing local law enforcement agencies in Rite Aid service areas with medication disposal units to ensure that individuals can safely dispose of unwanted medications in an environmentally-friendly manner, while keeping them out of the hands of kids and teens.

Safe Medication Disposal


  • Prescription Medications (Schedule II-V controlled and non-controlled substances)
  • Over-the-counter Medication

Not Accepted:

  • Illegal Drugs
  • Needles
  • Lotions or Liquids
  • Inhalers

Drug Drop off hours are Monday thru Thursday 6am to 4pm at the Thornton Police Department. And by appointment after normal business hours.
