How do I safely discard prescription & over the counter drugs?

A secure drop box is located in the main lobby of the police station at 700 Virginia Ave. 

Pills should be placed in a clear zip lock baggie, mixed together and without bottles. Liquids are not accepted, but can be poured onto coffee grounds or kitty litter in a plastic grocery bag and thrown in the common household garbage. 

For syringes, contact the Otero County Public Health office at 1207 8th St. or 575-437-9347. 

For more info or questions, please call 575-434-4304 or email alamogordopd@ci.alamogordo.nm.us
