Will the Fire Department take my prescription drugs?

No. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has installed permanent drug drop-off boxes at five patrol district offices. Citizens are now able to properly dispose of unwanted, unnecessary and expired prescriptions, as well as over-the-counter medicines and veterinarian prescriptions. The drop off boxes are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. See the locations here. ** Most pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and sanitation departments will not accept prescription drugs. **
