Proper Disposal of Opioids

Find your nearest take back box and bring your unused medications to it, removing them from your household and preventing them from getting into the wrong hands!

Disposal pouches are another safe way to dispose of medications. Simply drop your medications into the bag, add water, let the bag breathe for 30 seconds, then seal and throw away in the household trash.  This process neutralizes the medications so chemicals aren’t going into waterways, and so people cannot abuse them. This is especially convenient for those who cannot drive.
