Drug Take Back Program

The Eureka Police Department has a prescription drug collection box in the lobby area of the Police Department. This drug collection box was the first year-round prescription medication collection offered in St. Louis County, and is available to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Safely dispose of your unused, unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medicines.  Free of charge to you.  No questions asked. Prevent these substances from getting in the hands of unwitting youth or those seeking to abuse them.
