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.
  • Additional options - If you cannot find a convenient location in your county, check here for what you can do.
