Prescription Drug Drop Box

Prescription Drug Drop Box

If you have outdated or unwanted medications you need to get rid of, you can take them to the Belding Police Department. Trashing or flushing medications is unsafe for the environment and the public. Disposing of the medications properly can also help prevent a child from accidently being poisoned, reduces substance abuse, and protects the water. If you have medications that are expired or you no longer need, you can take them to the Belding Police Departement, 120 Pleasant St., in Belding. No needles are accepted.

The drop-box is available Monday through Friday from 8:00am until 5:00pm.
