Buchanan County Drug Dropbox Collects Over 1,000 Pounds of Drugs in Five Years

Over one thousand pounds of drugs.

That’s how much the Buchanan County Sheriff’s Office has collected in their drug dropbox over the past five years.

The Sheriff’s Office installed a public-use drop box outside their office in April 2016. And throughout the years, a total of 1,103 pounds of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and medications have been collected – providing residents with a safe and proper disposal option.

The dropbox is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and all types of unwanted drugs and medications – including illegal drugs – can anonymously be placed in the box.

Authorities say it’s a better option than throwing unwanted or expired drugs and medications in the trash and flushing them down the toilet.
