  • What can YOU do to keep unused or expired mediations from loved ones?
    • Dispose of your unused or expired medications at a local drop-off location or by the FDA guidelines below
    • Lock your medications and inventory them frequently to deter youth, family, and friends from taking them
    • Educate yourself and others that the nonmedical use of prescription drugs is just as dangerous as illicit drug use.

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.

Idaho Permanent Take-Back Locations

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.
