Drug Collection Unit for Disposal

The unit is intended to reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in residents’ homes and decrease prescription drug abuse, which has soared in recent years, especially among teenagers. More than 70 percent of teenagers say it is easy to get prescription drugs from their parents’ medicine cabinets, according to a 2014 Partnership for Drug-Free Kids study. This unit will also help the City of Plymouth prevent the contamination of local landfills and water supplies from unused medication.

“Safely disposing of unused medication is critical to protecting our children and our environment,” said Public Safety Director Allen Cox. “Plymouth City is proud to partner with CVS/pharmacy and we thank them for their commitment to help residents reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in our community.”

The City of Plymouth's new Drug Collection Unit site is open to the public, on the Main Floor of City Hall,  
Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m to 4:30 p.m. Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked. Please stop at the Police counter to check in your items for disposal.


Please place PILLS ONLY in either pill bottles (with or without labels) or plastic bags before bringing them to the collection unit.  This is for the safety of all concerned and to keep the potential for dangerous contamination or spilling of items to a minimum when the collection container is emptied.

If you have any questions regarding this program contact the City of Plymouth Police Department at (734) 453-1234 x 219.
