CDPHE Household Medication Take-Back Program
The program accepts and destroys unused and expired over-the-counter and prescription medications generated by households. All locations accept prescribed controlled substances (i.e., Percoset, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall). Medications may be deposited in their original containers, but you can help conserve space in collection bins by pouring pills/capsules into a zip-top bag and then trashing or recycling containers separately. Strike out personal information on pill containers before depositing in collection bins or trashing/recycling them. Do not deposit excessive packaging, like cardboard boxes, in the collection bins. Business wastes, including those generated in health care facilities, cannot be deposited in program kiosks. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office (Mountain Precinct) is located in Evergreen, CO. CDPHE has nearly 200 drop-off locations around the state and you may find a list of drop-off locations here.
