Drug Disposal Locations

Drug Disposal Locations

The majority of opioid abuse cases begin with prescription drug use. One effective means of preventing opioid misuse is to dispose of unneeded and unused prescription opioids.

Drug disposal boxes are located throughout Fulton County, which provides a place to safely and securely dispose of prescription drugs. Pharmaceuticals are regularly retrieved from the locked boxes and transported to the GBI incinerator in metro Atlanta by law enforcement personnel. 

Accepted items include:

  • Prescription medications
  • Controlled substances
  • All over-the-counter medications
  • Medication samples
  • Pet medications
  • Vitamins & supplements
  • Homeopathic remedies
  • Medicated ointments, lotions, creams and oils
  • Liquid medication in leak-proof containers

Items NOT Accepted Include:

  • Needles/sharps
  • Syringes with needles
  • Thermometers
  • IV bags
  • Bloody or infectious waste
  • Personal care products
