Medicine Return

Community drug drop-off sites 

There are several community drug drop-off sites in and around Bothell for residents to safely and securely dispose of expired or unwanted medicines.

Steps to Dispose of Unwanted Medications

  1. Gather all unwanted medications from wherever you have them stored (drawers, medicine cabinet, etc)
  2. Check the the latest information available with King County on secure medicine return and read which items are currently accepted.
  3. Bring accepted items to a community drug drop-off site. Leave items in their original containers. You will have an opportunity to mark out any personal information. Do not mark out the names of the medication. No questions will be asked, though your zip code will be recorded for research purposes.
  4. Place the items into the secure double locked collection box.
