Medication Drop Box

Town residents looking to dispose of excess or expired prescription or

over-the-counter medications can now visit the safe, anonymous, and secure

permanent drop off location, anytime it is convenient for them. TPAUD, Trumbull's Prevention Partnership (TPAUD) and the Trumbull Police Department have worked together to establish this permanent drug collection box as a way to reduce the supply of drugs that can be potentially harmful to kids, the water supply, and the landfill. Trumbull is one of the first towns in the area to provide a safe, secure, and environmentally friendly way to collect

unwanted or expired household medication, including prescriptions,

over-the-counter drugs, and unused pharmaceuticals. Trumbull residents won’t

have to wait for a specific take-back day to clean out their medicine cabinets.


Bring medications in original containers with the label removed.


Accepted: prescription, over-the-counter, pet medication, vitamins/supplements, patches, ointments, and medication samples.


Not Accepted: inhalers, needles (sharps), hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans, hazardous waste.

Open 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.  Located in the Trumbull Police Department Lobby.
