Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse.  The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.

The Marana Police Department, in partnership with the Marana-Foothills Optimist Club, Marana Prevention Alliance, and Vistoso Funeral Home, encourage citizens, businesses and schools to join us in sharing information about drug awareness and preventive measures.

The Police Department provides this opportunity for the proper disposal of unused and/or expired prescription drugs. Prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules will be collected. For safety and confidentiality reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. We cannot accept drugs from commercial organizations. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

BRING YOUR UNUSED OR EXPIRED PRESCRIPTIONS AND OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS, INCLUDING VETERINARIAN MEDICATIONS AND VITAMINS, TABLETS AND CAPSULES, TO BE COLLECTED. PLEASE KEEP ALL PILLS IN THEIR ORIGINAL CONTAINERS.

THE MARANA POLICE DEPARTMENT WOULD LIKE TO LET EVERYONE KNOW OF A CHANGE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS EVENT. SYRINGES, CREAMS OR LOTIONS WILL NO LONGER BE COLLECTED. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
