Prescription drugs are divided into two categories:

  • Controlled substances are under the authority of the Drug Enforcement Administration and may include illegal drugs or prescription medications such as pain killers and tranquilizers. You can find takeback locations for controlled substances here.
  • Non-controlled substances include over-the-counter drugs as well as prescription medications that are not regulated by the Controlled Substances Act. Your pharmacist or doctor can tell you which category a medication falls into. Proper disposal is different depending upon which type of medication you have. You can find takeback locations for non-controlled substances here.
