The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce, in partnership with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Iowa, the installation of a new drug collection box.

The collection box is located inside the entryway at the Dubuque Law Enforcement Center, 770 Iowa St, Dubuque. We will accept pharmaceutical drugs, as well as illicit substances, which will be collected and sent for destruction. Please respect that we cannot accept liquids or hypodermic needles. Drop-offs can be made anytime day or night, 365 days a year. Anyone wishing to make a drop-off simply needs to walk up to the box, take a plastic bag from the dispenser on the top of the collection box, place their drugs inside the bag, and place the bag inside the mail slot. Anyone can use this collection box to dispose of their excess drugs, which the Sheriff Department hopes will reduce their availability on the streets of our communities, and in turn make the Dubuque County Area a safer place for our families.
