Medical Disposal

Quick Links:





Medication Drop Box Locations:

Throughout Mahoning County, there are free and anonymous boxes to drop off unused, unwanted medication. These drop off boxes are intended to reduce the amount of unneeded medicine in resident’s homes and decrease prescription drug abuse, which has soared in recent years, especially among teenagers. 

These drop off boxes will accept prescription pills and medication patches. No needles, syringes, inhalers, creams or liquids please.
























Sharps Disposal:

Sharps can be disposed of through our Laboratory Services Division. 

They must be in an FDA approved sharps container and can be dropped off Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:30pm.
