Where to Dispose of Unused Medications

Pharmacies may offer two types of drug take-back services: on-site collection bins and/or envelopes for mailing back unused medications.

To find out if your pharmacy or one near you offers drug collection bins or mail-back envelopes, enter the pharmacy name or your city or ZIP code in the search box below.

NOTE: This search tool displays only collection receptacles that are registered with the Board of Pharmacy. California Code of Regulations, title 16, section 1776.1, requires pharmacies and clinics to notify the board in writing within 30 days of establishing or discontinuing a collection bin. Notification forms are available here.
