Help support a safe, convenient and responsible way disposing of prescription drugs by participating in National Prescription Drug Take Back Days! Bring any unused or expired medications to a drop-off location near you.
If you have medications to dispose of stay tuned for designated Drug Take Back Days--however, permanent year-round drop off sites can be found by entering your zip code here.
Turning in unwanted prescription drugs at these drop-off locations helps us keep our waterways safe from flushed or dumped pharmaceuticals that wastewater treatment plants are unable screen out. Help prevent these drugs from reaching our streets and waterways!

If your faucet drips or your toilet runs it can waste over 10,000 gallons a year -- the amount of water in a typical backyard swimming pool. More than one trillion gallons of water are lost annually in the U.S. due to easy-to-fix household leaks.
Stay tuned for more 2020 event details!
