Walgreens Safe Medication Disposal Program
Walgreens is leading the fight against prescription drug abuse with new programs to help curb the misuse of medications and reduce the rise in overdose deaths. In the ongoing national effort by a retailer, Walgreens has installed safe medication disposal kiosks in over 1,000 pharmacies across 45 states and the District of Columbia. Walgreens safe medication disposal kiosks provide a safe and convenient way to dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medications at no cost, year-round.
Kiosks are available during regular pharmacy hours and offer one of the best ways to ensure that medications are not accidentally used or intentionally misused by someone else.
The types of medications accepted include:
- prescription and over-the-counter drugs
- ointments and creams
- pet medications
These items are not accepted at the kiosks:
- hydrogen peroxide
- aerosol cans
- illegal drugs
There are safe medication disposal kiosks at two Torrance Walgreens stores:
