Free medicine return locations and services in Pierce County.

You can safely return medicine you don't need. MED-Project—funded by the drug industry—offers kiosk and postage-paid return envelopes to dispose unwanted medicine.

You can drop off drugs sold in any form at kiosks like:

  • Prescriptions.
  • Over-the-counter medications.
  • Controlled substances.
  • Pet medications.

Visit to find:

  • The items they accept.
  • Kiosk hours.
  • Locations.

Why should I use secure medicine return?

  • Limit drug abuse. The home medicine cabinet is one of the most common places people look for drugs to get high.
  • Prevent poisoning. Young children get poisoned when they take medicine not meant for them.
  • Protect the environment. When you flush medicine down the toilet or throw it in the trash, it pollutes our water and soil.
