Successful First Year for Dubuque County Drug Disposal Box

It’s been one year since the Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office installed their Prescription Drug Disposal Box… and officials consider it a success.


Over 350 pounds of prescription drugs were collected, along with nearly 190 pounds of non-prescription drugs, such as over-the-counter medications and vitamins.


The Sheriff’s Office encourages citizens to continue utilizing the drug collection box to keep potentially dangerous prescription drugs off the streets and out of landfills.


The box is located on the left side of the entryway at the Dubuque Law Enforcement Center.
