Sheriff’s Prescription Drug Turn-In Program 

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office want citizens to know that there  is  a  safe  and correct  way  to  dispose  of  unused,  expired,  or  unwanted  medications.

There  are  many  risks  associated  with  storing  prescription  drugs, which  are  not  part  of  a  current  drug  therapy.   Medications stored as leftovers from previous prescriptions lose there effectiveness over time. Having quantities of stored drugs in your home could lead to medication mistakes and accidental ingestion. Unauthorized access of stored medications may result in the drugs being stolen and abuse.  

It is important to our environment that unused medications are disposed of properly. Placing them in household trash or flushing them down a toilet or drain puts our ground water at risk. Sheriff Douglas Mullendore  encourages  the  community  to  bring  their  expired and unwanted  prescription  medications to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division, located at  500 Western Maryland Parkway, Hagerstown, MD so that these drugs may be safely disposed of in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.  Medications are accepted 24 hours per day, every day of the year, with no appointment necessary.

For more information please contact Sgt. Jim Holsinger, 240-313-2194.
