Medication Drop Box in Use at Knox City Police Department

The Knox City Police Department pill drop is helpful, according to City Police Chief Clint Norem.

He said residents have been taking unwanted, expired and unused prescription medications to the lobby of the police department and depositing them into the drop box for collection. Chief Norem explained that those medications are logged and then stored until DEA officials can collect those medications for incineration.

Norem indicated that his department is working on a way to incinerate the medications in-house, but that plan has not yet been finalized. The department will stick to protocol for now.

If you have any medications that are expired, unused or unwanted, drop them off in the drop box at the Knox City Police Department that is located right across the street from the City Hall. Syringes are not being accepted at this time.
