Prescription Drug Take Back Service

The Lafayette Police Department can accept your unwanted prescription medications and assure their proper disposal year-round.  No more waiting for designated drug take back events.

​Medications accepted include most prescription medications, patches, ointments, vitamins, over-the-counter medications and pet medications.  Items which cannot be accepted are needles, thermometers, oxygen containers, inhalers, aerosol cans, liquids containing hydrogen peroxide, chemotherapy or radioactive substances and illicit drugs.

​Protect others and the environment by bringing unwanted prescription drugs to the Lafayette Police Department Records Division during normal business hours, Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM, excluding holidays, for safe destruction.  There is no charge for this service.
