Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
Take Meds Back helps residents of Colorado safely dispose of unused and expired prescription medications. Safe disposal keeps meds like opioids, sedatives, and stimulants from being misused or abused. It also helps protect Colorado’s precious environment and wildlife.
The best way to get rid of medication is to take it to the nearest secure collection box. Communities, pharmacies, and government and law enforcement agencies are working together to install secure drop boxes across Colorado.
