The Olivette Police Department Drug Take-Back Initiative aims to provide a safe and convenient way for both residents and non-residents to dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused medications.
Dropping Off Medications for Disposal
Anyone wishing to drop off medications for disposal may do so Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays. The Olivette Police Department also participates in the National Drug Take-Back days which are coordinated with the Drug Enforcement Agency. These dates are determined by the DEA, however, typically are held in the Spring and Fall.

No needles may be accepted
No inhalers may be accepted
Pre-loaded syringes are OK as long as the needle has been removed
Eli-Pens are accepted
Pet medication are accepted
