Upcoming medication take-back event
Twice yearly, free medication take-back events are held in Clark County. The next event will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 10 am – 2 pm. 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 a partnership of multiple Clark County agencies and the US DEA.

You should 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’s name visible.
- Make sure the container is sealed and does not leak.
- All patient information is removed or obscured.
