Prescription Drug Take-Back

How To Safely Dispose of Rx Drugs 

Help keep drugs out of reach of kids and protect our water supply by properly disposing of your prescription medications. In addition to permanent drop-off sites, keep an eye out for the twice yearly "Prescription Drug Take-Back Days," which is a free event hosted by local law enforcement and the DEA to give our community safe and convenient ways to drop of expired or unused prescription drugs.
