Prescription Drug Take-back Program

Take-back days and prescription medication drop boxes are important in curtailing the abuse of prescription medication by reducing access to unused, unwanted or expired medications. If you missed your local drug take-back day and need to dispose of prescription medications, find a drop box near you. If you do not see a local drop-off location listed below 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.
