Get Rid of Old Prescriptions at a Drug Take-Back Box

Getting rid of medications you no longer use will eliminate the risk of prescription and over-the-counter medications getting into the hands of children and family members struggling with addiction. Prescription drug take-back boxes ensure these medications are disposed of in a safe, environmentally-friendly manner.
 
How do I do that?
 
  1. Find your closest take-back location on the Unwanted Pharmaceutical Take Back map.
  2. Contact the facility before going to drop off your medications to confirm guidelines.
