New Secure Medicine Return Program
King County now has a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted medicines.
King County residents can safely dispose of the medicines they no longer need by taking them to a drop-box located throughout King County. Participating pharmacies, clinics, hospitals and law enforcement offices will accept most prescription and over-the-counter medicines for disposal. Mail-back envelopes are also available for residents that are homebound or have limited mobility.

The Secure Medicine Return program is ongoing and funded by the drug companies that sell medicines into King County. There is no cost to residents to dispose of medicines using the program, either when purchasing or returning medicines.
