Properly dispose of prescription drugs.
If you have prescription drugs that have expired or you no longer need, you can deposit them into prescription drop-off boxes located in your community (use this DEA locator to find one near you) OR read this article to learn how to safely dispose of unused medications at home.
Use the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy drug disposal locator tool to find a list that includes police stations.
