Each year, Greensboro Beautiful assists local agencies in promoting safe medicine disposal. We encourage citizens to toss unused medicine safely to avoid harm to our lakes and streams, people, pets, and wildlife.
The Greensboro Police Department now offers two locations for the public to dispose of unused medication year-round. Prescription and over-the-counter pills, patches, ointments, and capsules can be deposited in secure collection boxes at two police stations: 300 South Swing Road, and 1106 Maple Street. The boxes are accessible Monday through Friday 8 am–5 pm.
Protect people, pets, the environment, and wildlife by tossing your meds safely every day of the year. Learn more about environmentally responsible medicine disposal at the national My Old Meds website.
