Medication

Unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications can be safely managed in York County using free Medication Return Boxes in most police departments. 

Medications can also be disposed of in your regular trash. As a precaution, mix the material with an undesirable substance such as coffee grounds or kitty litter before disposal. Also remember to destroy any personal information on medication containers. 

Prescription medications may also be disposed of via appointment at the York County Resource Recovery Center.
