Liberty Drug Collection Site

 Residents can drop off unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs for proper disposal at the box located in the lobby of the township administration building.

The Liberty Township Administration Building is located at 1315 Churchill Hubbard Road., Liberty Twp., Ohio 44505 and the lobby is open between the hours of 7-4 M-F.

Medicines in standard containers may be deposited in their own containers. Please ensure any liquid medications are secure before depositing. People may black out their names from the label, if desired. The medicines will be destroyed two times a year.

Why should unwanted, unused or expired medication be properly disposed of?

1) Painkiller abuse starts with family & friends
More than two thirds of people who said they had gotten high on painkillers for the first time in the previous year got the pills from family or friends, according to the analysis of two years of data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

2) Flushed medication ends up in our water supply. Who wants that?
