Medication & Sharps Disposal

Safe Prescription Drug Drop-Off

Prescription drug abuse is a nationwide problem. In addition, unsafe disposal of prescription medications is costly to the environment. Not just our prescriptions, pet medications also need to be safely disposed of.

In response to the growing demand for a safe and convenient way to dispose of household prescription medications, the Oxnard Police Department has installed a drop-box in the police station lobby.

We're located at:

251 South 'C' Street, Oxnard, CA 93030

Lobby Hours: Monday-Friday 8 AM-5PM

The "Safe Prescription Drug Drop-Off" program is available to the community. Residents can drop off unused or expired prescriptions, including pet medications and Sharps needles - no questions asked.

Police Department staff will check the boxes daily, collect the contents, and prepare for an environmentally-friendly disposal that is in accordance with Federal and State laws.

This program not only helps to protect the environment, it can also deter the usage of prescription drugs by unintended parties - including young people facing peer pressure and new ways to "get high." The Oxnard Police Department constantly strives to be proactive in enhancing public safety and saving lives.

This program is for household medications only. Medical professionals are not eligible.
