The Pima County Sheriff's Department will be hosting Dispose-A-Med events intermittently throughout the year. These events are offered free of charge thanks to a grant provided by the Department of Justice.
Tablets and capsules will be collected. Please empty your pills in a plastic bag before coming to the Dispose-A-Med Metal or glass inhalation aerosol bottles, syringes, epi-pens, creams, liquids, patches, and diabetic test strips will not be accepted. For safety and confidentiality reasons, any items turned over for collection cannot be returned. We do not accept drugs from commercial organizations. For information about the disposal of needles and syringes, please visit the Pima County Health Department website.
2013 has been very successful! To date, we have collected over 2,468 pounds. We wish to thank all those who participated in getting these unused or expired drugs off the street.
New dates will be available soon.
Additional dates will be posted throughout the year. Please check this page a few days before any event to get the most current information.
