Rx Drop-off

Prescription Drug Drop Off

Safe disposal of unused, unwanted or expired medications is available on campus and in the community. Prescription drug collection sites prevent diversion and theft of commonly abused medications that can be harmful to individuals who do not have a prescription. Safe disposal also prevents environmental harms from flushing medications or tossing them in the trash.
