Colorado Household Medication Take-Back Program

 
The program is now expanding with a goal of establishing at least one permanent collection location in every Colorado county. All locations can accept prescribed controlled substances (e.g. Percocet, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall) along with other prescribed and over-the-counter medications.
 
Use this interactive map to find current household medication take-back locations. Walgreen’s and some law enforcement agencies collecting on their own, while not part of the state program, have been included for completeness (we recommend calling these locations to verify hours and items acceptable for disposal). Kaiser Permanente program locations are also included, along with hours of operation.

Items that can or cannot be accepted
The success of the program depends on its proper use.
 
Medications may be deposited in their original containers, but you can help conserve space in collection bins by pouring pills/capsules into a zip-top bag and then trashing or recycling containers separately. Strike out personal information on pill containers before depositing in collection bins or trashing/recycling them.
 
Do not deposit excessive packaging, like cardboard boxes, in the collection bins.
