Disposal

You CAN help stem the tide of opioid abuse: more than 65 percent of people misusing painkillers get them from friends or family. Taking opioids responsibly means preventing misuse and abuse – never share or sell your medications and ensure proper disposal and storage.

Prescription disposal locations are offered year-round across the Mid-Shore. The collection sites and times are listed here.
