Colorado Medication Take-Back Program

Important notice!
This program is about to expand statewide and will begin accepting prescribed controlled substances (e.g. Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall) at all newly established collection locations.
The program’s previous collection locations at King Soopers, City Market, Tri-County Health Department, and Denver Health are no longer available. The collection receptacles have been removed from service, and the facilities will not accept medications.
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 listed below. Law enforcement and Walgreens locations can accept prescribed controlled substances along with other prescribed and over-the-counter medications. 

We recommend calling a location if you plan to visit outside normal business hours of Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, to see if they will be open.
