The Fairfax Police Department will provide a cautious and convenient method to dispose of drug items. It will be completely anonymous and no questions for identity will be asked. The medication can be left in its original container, or it can be removed from it; if it is being disposed with the original container, it is encouraged to remove any identifying information.

We will not accept injectables, syringes, and illicit substances. E-Cigarettes and Vaping Devices are allowed if the batteries are removed.
