Thank you for looking for safe alternatives for disposing your medications. Flushing medications means they can get into our water system which can impact fish, wild life, or even you. Unused drugs can also find their way into the wrong hands—that is dangerous and often tragic. Oregon’s Drug Take Back program kicked off on July 1st 2021. The program provides a free, convenient, safe, and secure way to dispose of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medicines.
You can locate a participating drop-off site and find out how to obtain a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope by visiting medtakebackoregon.org or calling
844-482-5322 or 844-4-TAKE-BACK.
