HCSO to create four drug drop-box locations

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is placing four drug drop-off boxes around the county. Residents can drop off old, expired medications that may be left over in their medicine cabinets. It's a much safer alternative to throwing them in the trash, or flushing them down the toilet.

Pills in bottles and boxes, patches, powders, liquids in the original container or properly sealed to prevent leakage; inhalers and veterinarian prescription drugs are all permitted in the drop boxes.

Syringes, epipens, biohazards, medical equipment and illegal street drugs are not permitted.

Here are the four locations:

  • District I: 14102 N. 20th Street, Tampa, 813-247-0600
  • District II: 2310 N. Falkenburg Road, Brandon, 813-247-8555
  • District III: 7202 Gunn Highway, Tampa, 813-247-0330
  • District IV: 508 33rd Street SE, Ruskin, 813-247-0455
