Prescription Drug Disposal Locations


Help keep our communities safe and healthy by properly disposing of your old medication at a permanent prescription drug disposal location near you. If you do not see a local disposal location listed for your county, call your local police department or sheriff’s office. Some departments will informally accept your unused and expired medications. Sharps, IV tubing, and infectious waste are not accepted.

Looking for a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Collection Site?

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is an annual event that takes place each April and October to address the public safety issue created by unused or expired prescription drugs, which are highly susceptible to misuse and theft. Take Back Day events raise awareness about the dangers of keeping unused medication in the home, and provide an opportunity for Americans to safely and securely dispose of unneeded medications and help prevent drug misuse and overdose in our communities. These collection sites events are temporary and different than the Permanent Prescription Drug Disposal Locations shared above.

The 22nd National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is on Saturday, April 30th, 2022 from 10am – 2pm. Click here to find a Take Back Day Collection Site event near you.
