MedReturn Drug Collection Units have been placed in two locations downtown. You can use the Unit to safely dispose of prescription pills, patches, vitamins and prescription pills for pets.

    • Lexington Division of Police, 150 E. Main St.
      Monday—Sunday from 7 a.m.—10 p.m.
    • Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, 150 N. Limestone, Ste. 236
      Monday—Friday from 8 a.m.—4 p.m.
       

    Liquid medications cannot be disposed of in the MedReturn Unit. Here is how to dispose of such medications:

    • Remove/destroy ALL personal information on labels and containers before throwing them into the trash.
    • Add kitty litter, coffee grounds or other solids to the medication to make it less appealing to children and pets/animals.
    • Seal the container and place in a plastic bag or plastic container so that it is not identifiable as medication.
    • Place in trash.
