Prescription Drug Dropoff

  Back to Police Department

The Altoona Police Department has installed a secure pharmaceutical drug collection drop-box at the Altoona Police Department, 1106 16th Street. Community members are now welcome to come to the front lobby of the Altoona Police Department where unwanted medications may be turned in anonymously. This collection box is not intended for the use of physicians or other business entities who already have established procedures and existing resources for the disposal of unwanted or expired pharmaceuticals. 

The Altoona Police Department's drop box is available to our community 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

 We will NOT accept the following items: 

  • Needles (Sharps)
  • Inhalers
  • Aerosol Cans
  • Ointments, Lotions, or Liquids
