Drug Take-Back

The California Statewide Drug Take-Back Program was created to combat the opioid crisis and reduce the misuse of medications by expanding options for the public to safely discard unwanted medicines with a statewide network of take-back receptacles (bins).The program, administered by California Product Stewardship Council, established take-back bins across California at Drug Enforcement Agency-approved locations, including California-licensed pharmacies, hospitals or clinics with onsite pharmacies, and law enforcement departments. This project has concluded as of 2021. Read more about the program at TakeBackDrugs.org.
