Temporary Drop-Off Locations
How can I dispose of my unwanted and expired medicines?
Ongoing Temporary Take-Back Programs
For the safety of our kids, families and environment, some law enforcement offices and pharmacies are collecting unwanted medicines from residents until a permanent statewide program is in place. Local governments, businesses, individuals and citizen groups are working to create a statewide program paid for by drug companies. Check here to find a temporary take-back location near you.
What to do when you return your medicines
Check the What Can You Take Back list to see which items are accepted.
Leave medicines in their original containers and, if you wish, mark out any personal information.
Most law enforcement offices listed here can accept all medicines, including controlled substances.
For now, pharmacies cannot accept controlled substances. If you need to dispose of a controlled substance, take it to a participating law enforcement location.
