Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Time to clean out your medicine cabinet and dispose of unused or expired prescriptions! Prescriptions can be taken to a local pick up site (see link).

For older adults that cannot make it to a Prescription Drug Drop box, we will be providing FREE Deterra bags to local agencies and housing centers. (Supplies are limited!) What is Deterra? Deterra is a great way of getting rid of unused and unwanted pills, liquids and patches at-home. The simple three-step process is easy and encourages utilization and proper deactivation of drugs.
Supplies are limited so registration is a must!

After registering your agency, a staff member will reach out to confirm delivery date and time for your location. Registration closes Friday October 9th or when supplies run out. Bags will be delivered the week of October 19th.
