A kiosk site is a pharmacy or law enforcement agency that has a kiosk where patients can dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medicine from households. Be sure to check with each kiosk site to confirm if there are restrictions to what it collects.
Each kiosk site may vary in what it collects. The Locator provides a list of kiosk sites that publicly available information indicates are available to patients to dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medicines from households. If you have questions about a kiosk site, including hours the kiosk site is open and what can be disposed of there, contact the kiosk site directly.
