Drug Disposal Locations

The majority of opioid abuse cases begin with prescription drug use. One effective means of preventing opioid misuse is to dispose of unneeded and unused prescription opioids.

Drug disposal boxes are located throughout Fulton County, which provide a place to safely and securely dispose of prescription drugs. Pharmaceuticals are regularly retrieved from the locked boxes and transported to the GBI incinerator in metro Atlanta by law enforcement personnel. 

Locate the drug disposal box closest to you with the Fulton County Drug Disposal Box Locator.
