Safely dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medications
It is important for everyone to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medications.
Many pharmacies now provide a process for you to drop off these old medications. The next time you are picking up a RX, as them if they provide this service.
The City of Surprise Police Department has a RX drug collection bin in its lobby for easy disposal of unwanted drugs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are located at 14250 W. Statler Plaza, Surprise. Items that cannot be deposited include: needles, ointments, lotions, liquids, aerosol cans, inhalers, hydrogen peroxide, or thermometers. For more information, call their office at (623) 222-4000.
If you read local newspapers, you will also see notices occasionally regarding RX Drug Take Back Services that are provided in our area by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department and/or the POSSE a couple of times a year.
