Drop off your unused or expired medications for proper disposal. Properly disposing of your unused medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, reduces risk of accidental poisoning, environmental contamination, and misuse. Be sure to mark out patient information prior to drop off.

Sharps will be accepted in appropriate containers.


Proper disposal of medication helps promote a healthy community! By removing unused medication from your home, you can reduce your likelihood for burglary along with reducing the chance for meds to be misused.

There are environmental benefits too! By not flushing or throwing away your medication, you save the environment and water supply from contamination.
Remember! You can dispose of controlled substances at your local police department and non-controlled and over the counter to a designated pharmacy. Check out Disposal locations for more info
