Prescription Drug Disposal South Florida

List of over 130 National Drug Take-Back locations in South Florida, where anyone can safely and anonymously rid themselves of unwanted prescription drugs.

7th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day - Oct. 26, 2013

We’re pleased to tell you that National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday October 26. This annual event allows people to anonymously dispose of their unwanted prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications.

As we know too well here in Florida, prescription drug abuse is a growing national problem. Getting rid of your unwanted prescription medications ensures that those who have drug problems won’t be tempted to “borrow” them. In addition, flushing or throwing away prescription drugs can damage the water system and environment. We can reduce accidental drug misuse, and perhaps a few unintential starts down the opioid addiction spiral. By dropping off your unwanted medications, you can protect others, as well as plants and animals.

There are over 130 locations in South and Central Florida where you can anonymously drop off unwanted prescription drugs. Please spread the word about this to your family, friends and co-workers.

In Orlando, you can drop off medications at the Orlando Regional Hospital; the University of Florida Student Union; the Edgewater Drive CVS Pharmacy; the Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, Southwest and Lake Nona Community Police Offices; and Orlando Police Headquarters.

In Daytona Beach, you can drop off medications at both police department locations, the Belville Road CVS Pharmacy and the Sheriff’s Office. In Gainesville, collection sites include all three Walgreen’s locations. In Hallandale, you can make drop-offs at both Winn-Dixie East and Winn-Dixie West, as well as Wal-mart.

In Miami, all police offices will be accepting drop-offs, while in Naples, Walgreen’s, Wal-mart, CVS Pharmacy and the Naples Recycling Center will hosting site collection spaces.

In Palm Coast, you can make drop-offs at the City Marketplace, Belle Terre Crossings Shopping Plaza and Palm Harbor Shopping Center.

In Sarasota, you can make drop-offs with the New College of Florida Campus Police, the Sarasota Police Department and the Gillespie Park Police Sub-Stations. In West Palm Beach, go to Fire Rescue Station #5 or #2, or the police department. In Vero Beach, collection sites include both Walgreen’s and Perkins Drugs locations.
