Medication Disposal

Medication Disposal

Union County now has several permanent collection sites for unused, unwanted and expired medication. Please click on the link below for the site locations. The goal of the program is to allow residents of Union County to deliver all their unwanted medicines to law enforcement officials who can in turn dispose of these controlled substances in a safe and non-hazardous manner.
