Medication Disposal

When your medicines are no longer needed, they should be disposed of promptly. Consumers and caregivers should remove expired, unwanted, or unused medicines from their home as quickly as possible to help reduce the chance that others accidentally take or intentionally misuse the unneeded medicine, and to help reduce drugs from entering the environment.

In Franklin County, there are several drug drop boxes. To view locations outside the 270 outerbelt, zoom out on the map by clicking the minus sign in the upper left corner.
