Safe Medicine Disposal Locations for Residents

Unused medicine is a threat to both public health and the environment. Since 2003, more drug overdoses occur annually from prescription medicines than cocaine and heroin combined. Accidental poisonings from medicines in the home are also a concern for young children, seniors, and pets. 

All San Francisco police stations accept unwanted medicine. Stations now have medicine collection kiosks and police reports are no longer required. 

Dispose of your unwanted and expired medicine at a drop-off location near you:
