How to safely dispose of unused medicine

Prescription and over-the-counter medicines should not be flushed down the toilet or put in the trash. Returning your unwanted medicines to a take-back program keeps our kids, families, and communities safe. In King County, there are over 100 medicine drop-boxes located at participating retail pharmacies, hospitals, clinics, and law enforcement offices. There is no cost to residents to use this service.Find a drop box near you.  

Please note that medicines are not accepted at the hazardous waste drop-off locations.
