TAKE MEDS BACK PROGRAM
Gilpin County is pleased to announce that we are now a part of the Take Meds Back program. This program helps residents of Colorado safely dispose of unused and expired prescription medications. Safe disposal keeps meds like opioids, sedatives, and stimulants from being misused or abused. It also helps protect Colorado’s precious environment and wildlife. A permanent DRUG DROP-OFF BOX has been installed in the OUTER LOBBY OF THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE. The public can drop the permitted drugs off 24 hours a day. For a list of what can be placed in the drop-off box please click here . If you have questions, you can call the Gilpin County Sheriff's Office at 303-582-1060 from 8am to 5pm.
Retired United States Flag drop-off box is now located in the lobby of the Gilpin County Library. If you have an old U.S. flag that needs to be retired, place it in the box and the local Elks or DAR will collect them and dispose of them by using the proper flag retirement procedure.
