Safely storing and disposing of your prescription medications helps keep family, friends, kids and pets in your home safe from accidental or purposeful ingestion.

Also, flushing medications or tossing them in the trash is a danger to our waterways and wildlife.

Vermont makes it easy to store and get rid of your unused medication.

Find a convenient disposal kiosk location near you

With over 80 locations statewide, getting rid of unused medication is easy and more convenient than ever. Check the list below to find the pharmacy, health care facility and police departments that host free and easy to use kiosks.

Frequently asked questions about disposal kiosks
How do disposal sites work?
  1. Gather unwanted or expired medication from your home
  2. Remove or obscure personal information from containers
  3. Place prescription directly into drop-off kiosk. No need to remove from packaging.
  4. Do not place loose pills or other mediations directly in kiosk. If needed, please place pills in a clear zippered bag.
What can I dispose of at the drop-off locations?

Materials accepted vary by location but may include:

  • Prescription medications
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Medicated ointments and lotions
  • Pet medications

Materials accepted vary by location. Check the list of disposal kiosk locations for details.

What can’t I dispose of at the drop-off locations?
  • Illegal Controlled Substances
  • Sharps (syringes/needles) are not accepted at all locations

Materials accepted vary by location. Check the list of disposal kiosk locations for details.
