The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. For a safe drug disposal box location near you, please review the list on this site.

If you happen to miss “Take Back Day,” please note there are other ways to dispose of unused or expired medications such as taking the steps listed below:

1. Take your prescription drugs out of their original containers.

2. Mix drugs with an undesirable substance, such as cat litter or used coffee grounds.

3. Put the mixture into a disposable container with a lid, such as an empty margarine tub, or into a sealable bag.

4. Conceal or remove any personal information, including Rx number, on the empty containers by covering it with permanent marker or duct tape, or by scratching it off.

5. The sealed container with the drug mixture, and the empty drug containers, can now be placed in the trash.

If you need assistance or have any questions, please feel free to contact the Opioid Coordinator at 404-394-5143 or via email at
