Unused and expired medications can pose a health and safety risk for you and your family. Proper disposal is important. Take advantage of this opportunity to eliminate these medications from your home. Syringes will also be accepted (for those with diabetes and/or other uses).

The process is simple. Drive up to the drop-off point and place your medications and/or syringes in the appropriate containers. If you have questions, contact the Jefferson County Health Department.
