Take Meds Back Program
Gilpin County is pleased to announce that we are a part of the Take Meds Back program.
This program helps residents of Colorado safely dispose of unused and expired prescription medications. Safe disposal keeps meds like opioids, sedatives, and stimulants from being misused or abused. It also helps protect Colorado’s precious environment and wildlife.
A permanent drug drop-off box has been installed in the outer lobby of the Sheriff's Office. The public can drop permitted drugs off 24 hours a day.
For a list of what can be placed in the drop-off box visit: https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/cdphe/items-can-or-cannot-be-accepted.
If you have questions, you can call the Gilpin County Sheriff's Office at 303-582-1060 from 8am to 5pm.
