The Grundy County Sheriff's Department already had been accepting those items, but only during regular office hours.

Now there's a drop box just inside the foyer area of the law enforcement center that's available 24 hours daily. The Grundy County Community 2000 Coalition partnered with the sheriff's office and Trenton Police Department to obtain what Trenton Police Chief Tommy Wright called a secure metal box for those items. Wright, who's also president of the Grundy County 2000 Coalition, said it's part of the coalition's strategy to keep unwanted, unused, or no longer needed prescription and non-prescription medications out of the hands of children, and from getting into the water supplies.

Grundy County Sheriff Rodney Herring indicated the new box will be more user friendly, and allow people more convenient drop-offs

Prescription medications, over the counter medications, vitamins, ointments, lotions, medications in glass and Leak-proof containers, and medications for pets can be placed in the drop box.
