Expired Medication Disposal

It is a common scenario for the public to stop by our fire station with old or expired medications they wish to turn in. We DO NOT have a program or receptacle that allows us to assist you with this.

HOWEVER, our public safety partners at the Worthington Police Division, which is literally a stone's throw away from us at 6555 Worthington Galena Road, have both a program and a secure collection receptacle in which to place your medications.

After driving into their parking lot during weekday business hours, please use the public entry doors to access their lobby where the receptacle is located.

You can learn more about their program at https://www.worthington.org/268/Police.

The FDA also is a good resource for tips on safe disposal of unwanted drugs at https://www.fda.gov/drugs/safe-disposal-medicines/disposal-unused-medicines-what-you-should-know.
