Now you can drop where you shop.
In 2015 San Mateo County joined many other counties in California and Washington to adopt ordinances that require pharmaceutical companies to fund the safe and convenient collection of unwanted or expired medicine for residents.
In 2017, 36 kiosks were installed throughout the County ranging from local pharmacies to police stations with over 31,000 pounds of medicine collected.
The Program just got even better with 14 new CVS kiosk installation sites making it even easier to get rid of medicine with over 50 drop-off disposal locations available for residents throughout San Mateo County.
Haven’t had a chance to clean out your cabinet? Now is as good of time as any to protect your pets from accidental ingestion, and teens from access to medicines no longer needed.
Remember, never flush medicine down the toilet, or dispose of it in the trash to help protect our environment and waterways from medicine pollution.
