Colorado Medication Take-Back Program

Major program changes are coming!

Over the next few months, the program will be undergoing major changes. No later than June 30th, King Soopers, City Market, and Tri-County Health Department locations will stop collecting unused medications. However, new collection locations will be added to the program, all with the ability to collect unused prescribed controlled substances (e.g. Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall).

Please check this web site often to see what collection sites are available or call 303-692-2903 for the latest information.



The Colorado Medication Take-Back Program is a network of secure boxes for collecting unused and unwanted household medications.
This program is for unused household medications only. Medication wastes generated by health care facilities including doctors’ offices, hospitals, pharmacies, clinics, veterinary clinics, long-term care facilities and any other businesses are prohibited.
We can’t accept prescribed narcotics or other controlled substances, such as Percocet, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Ritalin and Adderall or their generic equivalents. We also can’t accept sharps or needles.

We are accepting applications from law enforcement agencies for reimbursement of costs for transportation and disposal of collected household medications. We will only reimburse expenses that were incurred after an application has received final approval.
