You can make a difference in prescription drug misuse and abuse by participating in a community drug take back program! By ridding your home of expired and unused medications, these substances are no longer available for individuals to abuse. Proper drug disposal also protects our environment.
Listed below are drug take back programs that are available in New Mexico. If you are unable to access a community disposal program, find out how you can safely dispose of medications at home.
The Household Hazardous Waste Center located at 6137 Edith N.E. in Albuquerque accepts toxic cleaners and etc. from Albuquerque and / or Bernalillo County residents. For more information, including hours of operation, visit their Web site. New Mexican residents living outside Bernalillo County should check with their residing county for waste disposal information.
