Drug Disposal

How to dispose of prescription drugs

It is important to dispose of your prescription and over the counter drugs properly. By placing them in the City drug disposal kiosk, you are ensuring that they will not end up in local streams where they can harm local wildlife. The drug disposal kiosk is free to Denton residents and located in the Denton Police Department lobby at 601 E. Hickory St., Suite E, and is available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
However, it is for residential use only and not for business disposal.

The kiosk accepts all:

  • Prescription medications: pills, liquids, creams, patches, inhalers
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Pet medications
  • Vitamins and herbal supplements

PLEASE NOTE: Syringes and sharp items are not accepted.
