Upcoming medication take back event

Saturday, April 30, 10 am - 2 pm

Medication take back events are held twice a year at multiple locations throughout Clark County. Citizens may drop off any unwanted medications free of charge and no questions asked. Let's work together to keep these substances out of the hands of children and away from our waterways. Events are hosted in partnership with substance misuse prevention coalitions, community partners and the US DEA.

Unwanted Medication Transportation Tips

Keep the following in mind when transporting unwanted medications for disposal:

  • While it is perfectly acceptable to combine all pills into one resealable plastic bag, if you get pulled over it might be easier to explain if you keep them in the original container with the medication name visible.
  • Make sure the container is sealed and does not leak.
  • Remove or obscure all patient information.
