Medication Drop-Off


Dakota County residents can now drop-off prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication at the City of West St. Paul Police Department to safely and anonymously dispose of them. For a list of types of medication accepted, visit the Sheriff's Office Prescription Drug Drop-Off page.

Bring cancer-treating drugs to the Recycling Zone. The Recycling Zone does not accept prescription or over-the-counter medication.

Over-the-counter medications and prescriptions can pollute our waters and be harmful to humans, fish, and other wildlife when disposed of improperly – please do not flush medications down the toilet or place in the trash.
