The next National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 25, 2020!

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!
