Properly disposing of medication contributes to keeping our environment, especially our waterways, protected and our community healthy. SWACO is a proud partner of the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day which occurs twice a year. These mobile collection events aim to provide safe, convenient, and responsible means for disposing unwanted prescription drugs.
In addition, SWACO partners with communities throughout Franklin County to make permanent drop-off locations available year-round.
Permanent Drug Drop-Off Locations
Please don’t put prescription drugs in the trash. Instead, stop by one of these locations to safely dispose of unwanted medications. Each location accepts dry, prescription pills. If you have other items such as liquid medicines, inhalers, needles, creams, or patches, please verify that they are accepted by calling first.
