Montgomery County Drug Take Back Day

For more information on the Drug Disposal Program, please visit

Typically, approximately 40 police departments are drop-off sites for Drug Take Back Day, including several grocery store locations staffed by police officers. The complete list of drop-off locations will be released closer to the event’s date and will be listed on this page. 

Over 108,000 pounds of unused prescription and over-the-counter medicines and pills have been collected in Montgomery County since the drug disposal program began in 2010. The aim of the program is to make Montco homes safer in order to prevent overdoses and accidents, while also providing a method for residents to safely dispose of these unwanted, expired medications. The program is a partnership with the  Montgomery County Police Chiefs Association and the District Attorney’s Office.

Accepted throughout the year at permanent MedReturn boxes are prescription and over-the-counter tablets and capsules, inhalers, creams, ointments, nasal sprays, pet medicines and vaping products. 

Not accepted are needles, liquid meds and intravenous/injectable solutions.
