  • Secure Medicine Return

    Free medicine return locations and services.

    You can safely return medicine you don’t need. Funded by the drug industry—kiosks and postage-paid return envelopes are available to dispose unwanted medicine.

    You can drop off drugs sold in any form or dosage (pills, tablets, patches, ointments or liquids) at kiosks like:

    • Prescriptions.
    • Over-the-counter medications.
    • Legally possessed controlled substances.
    • Pet medications.

    Visit  medtakebackwashington.org to find:

    • The items they accept.
    • Kiosk locations and hours.
    • Order mail-back supplies.

    Why should I use safe medication return?

    • Limit drug abuse. The home medicine cabinet is one of the most common places people look for drugs to get high.
    • Prevent poisoning. Young children get poisoned when they take medicine not meant for them.
    • Protect the environment. When you flush medicine down the toilet or throw it in the trash, it pollutes our water and soil.
