Outdated prescription medicine, pharmaceuticals you no longer use may be turned in at the Mill Valley Police Department during normal business hours. Place items into the green disposal bin located in the front lobby. Drugs must be removed from their original packaging and placed in zip-lock bags. Ointments or liquids may remain in their original containers.
Sharps or needles should be returned to your pharmacy for proper disposal. Do not flush medicine and sharps down the toilet! Some compounds used in making medicine can pass through wastewater treatment plants and into the Bay which can harm aquatic life.
Some pharmacies will accept your old medications and sharps. Contact the County of Marin for a list of free drop off locations.
