Colorado Medication Take-Back Program

Major program changes are coming!
The Colorado Medication Take-Back Program is expanding statewide with new locations able to collect prescribed controlled substances (e.g. Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall) along with other prescribed and over-the-counter medications. Locations will include participating retail pharmacies, hospital/clinics, and law enforcement agencies. We ask for your patience as this new collection network is established.
The program’s current locations will stop collecting medications on the following dates:
  • June 22nd – Breckenridge and Dillon City Markets.
  • June 28th - Wheat Ridge and Evergreen King Soopers; Tri-County Health Department Englewood; Denver Health (to be re-established in July)
  • June 29th – Highlands Ranch, Aurora, Stapleton and Castle Rock King Soopers; Tri-County Health Department Commerce City.

Replacement locations will be added throughout the summer, so check back with us regularly. In the mean time, some local law enforcement agencies continue to accept medications, and Walgreens has started their own collection program at the locations below. Law enforcement and Walgreens locations can accept prescribed controlled substances (Adderall, Vicoden, Percoset, Ritalin, Oxycontin, etc.)
