How can I dispose of unwanted medicines in San Francisco?

Bring unwanted and expired medicines to one of San Francisco’s 45 medicine drop-off locations. You can also visit any San Francisco Public Library or Fire Station to pick up a free, prepaid envelope to mail in your medicine for proper disposal. Residents unable to travel to a drop-off or mail-back envelope distribution location may request a free, prepaid envelope be sent to their home online or by calling 1.844.633.7765.
