Medication Drop-Off

We are a safe, convenient, and responsible site to dispose of your prescription drugs. Did you know that prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved to be abused or illegally sold, or that drugs flushed down toilets contaminate the water supply? We can help prevent and reduce medication misuse by properly disposing of any unneeded medications at home. Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands, creating a dangerous and often tragic situation. We encourage all students and employees to bring any expired, unused, or unwanted medications to our office for proper disposal. They can be dropped off any time during our office hours.
