Unwanted Medication Disposal

Have you ever wondered what to do with unused, unwanted or expired prescription medication?  Keeping them out of our water system is important, so medications should NEVER be flushed down the toilet.  Instead, local police and other agencies offer annual medication collection days.  Check back for more information.

  Allen County TRIAD, volunteer organizations and the Allen County Solid Waste Management District have organized a year-round medication collection program.  Only pills are accepted at these sites.  Collection boxes are located in the lobby of the following police agencies and unwanted pills may be dropped off during the hours shown:
