Medication Collection Drop Box

The purpose of the collection box is to provide the residents of Lincoln County with a safe and convenient method of disposal for outdated or unwanted medications.  For security reasons the collection box is located at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) in Wiscasset. It is against the right-hand wall just inside the front door. To protect against theft, the box itself is firmly attached to the wall. The collection box will be open for use throughout the year, with the exception of weekends and holidays.

Prescription and non-prescription medications, over the counter substances, and medications for pets will be accepted.  The following will not be accepted: liquid pharmaceutical products such as cough syrup, as well as intravenous solutions, needles, and syringes.

It is self-service - simply drop medications into the box. It is not necessary to call beforehand. Hours of operation are Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please remove all personal identifying information from labels before discarding medications.
