Texas Communities Offer Prescription Drug Disposal

The cities of Texas are proud to offer prescription drug disposal locations for their residents. Before dropping off unwanted medications, residents are encouraged to call the facility before visiting to confirm what is accepted. Generally, law enforcement agencies can accept controlled substances, such as certain anti-anxiety or pain medications. When disposing of sharps, (needles, syringes, or lancets) please place them in a sharps disposal container or a hard plastic or metal container with a secure lid. If possible, break off needles to prevent reuse. The facilities cannot accept medical waste, such as IV tubing or bags. The following items can be accepted for disposal:

  • Prescription medications (pills, liquids, creams, patches)
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Pet medications
  • Vitamins and herbal supplements
  • Inhalers

If no disposal program for controlled substances is convenient, the AWARXE Medication Disposal page provides instructions on safely disposing of controlled substances at home.
