How to dispose of prescription drugs year-round


National Drug Take Back Day was October 23, but if you missed it, there are local resources that allow you to safely dispose of any drugs or opioids in your own home.

Many pharmacies and local law enforcement agencies have free, permanent drug drop boxes in those counties, with some available all year. All are anonymous.

There are also at home options to properly and safely dispose of any unneeded or expired medications through your household trash.
