Drug drop-off keeps unwanted medications off the street, helps prevent overdoses and accidental poisonings, and provides a disposal method that's safe for the environment and wildlife. We offer two free options:

Super Service Saturdays

Residents can dispose of expired and unwanted medications at periodic Super Service Saturday events that also include free document shredding and child safety seat checks.
