Recycle Right

The next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will take place on April 27, 2024

To find a list of participating drop-off event locations in Franklin County, visit the DEA website.


To safely dispose of leftover pharmaceuticals from the home, the best option is to take them to a pharmaceutical drop-off location or a temporary collection event. There are many pharmaceutical drop-off locations available in central Ohio that can be located using the links and search button below.

Unused medicine that is left in the home creates a high risk of accidental overdose and illegal abuse if not properly disposed. Flushing medication down the toilet can contribute to water contamination and therefore is not recommended.

  • Only pills and other solid prescriptions, such as patches, can be disposed of at collection sites.
  • Sharps are not accepted, but can be disposed of at several publicly available collection locations.
