Patient ResourcesGet information that matters to you
What do you do with all of those pills, tablets, and patches you don’t need anymore?
Here’s an option to let the experts handle disposal.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration sponsors periodic national prescription drug take-back days with collection sites around the country. During these events, people can bring unused or expired medications to a central location where they can be disposed of safely. You can also search for a collection site in your local area using this handy tool: https://apps.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/pubdispsearch/spring/main?execution=e1s1 or call 800-882-9539 for more information.
Alternatively, some local government agencies, doctors’ offices, and pharmacies have programs or protocols in place for collecting medications. Talk with your city or county government’s household trash and recycling service, doctor’s office, or pharmacist about drug take-back options in your community.
