Prescription Drug & Sharps Disposal

Drop-off of prescription drugs and sharps is permitted the 3rd Saturday of each month from 10:00 AM until 12:00 PM at the Wheeling Police Department located at 1 Community Boulevard. Residents can drop-off prescription and non-prescription medications, as well as sharps (needles/syringes). Medications should be in original containers with no readable personal information.

Sharps not in rigid containers WILL NOT be accepted. Acceptable containers are available through the Community Development Department and during the drop-off process.  Disposal of controlled pharmaceutical substances can take place at Save a Star drop-off locations or DEA Take-Back Days. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency's list of regulated controlled substances can be found by clicking here
