Altadena Sheriff’s Station Moving to Monthly Prescription Medication Pick Up Rather than 24 Hours a Day


Effective today the prescription mailboxes outside the station have been removed and we will no longer accept prescription meds from the public on a daily basis. You can advise the public to bring them to a local pharmacy for disposal.

We are in the process of determining a day and time each month where the public will be able to bring their prescription medication to the Altadena Sheriff’s station for disposal. You can refer them to the DEA’s website for drop off locations.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We will publish our upcoming prescription medication disposal events as well as any nearby police departments.

The sharps disposal box will remain.
