Drug Drop Box

The Grapevine Police Department Drug Drop Box is located in the Records area of the lobby inside the Public Safety Building at 1007 Ira E. Woods.  Temporary access to the drop box will be offered Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, and will be discontinued on October 25, 2019.  After October 25, 2019, unwanted medications will only be accepted twice a year during National Rx Take Back events.

The drop box is not intended for the use of business, pharmacies, clinics, doctor's offices or any facility that distributes medications. Acceptable and unacceptable forms of medications available for drop off are listed below.

Acceptable Medications - Prescriptions, Pet Meds, Prescription Patches and Vitamins.

Unacceptable Medications - Needles, Inhalers, Aerosols, Hydrogen Peroxide, Thermometers, Ointments, Lotions or Liquids.

Why residents should turn in their unused prescription drugs:

• Medications that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to misuse and abuse.
• Drugs can be scavenged and illegally sold.
