Don’t Hang on to Meds! Medicine return drop-boxes are at grocery stores, pharmacies, clinics, and other locations in King County. Find one near you at or text MEDS to 667873. 

The Heroin and Prescription Opiate Addiction Taskforce recommended promotion of safe storage and safe disposal of medications as one strategy to prevent opioid use and misuse. King County has over 100 secure drop-boxes located throughout King County thanks to the Secure Medicine Return program. With funds from Mental Illness & Drug Dependency, DCHS and Public Health, in coordination with Secure Medicine Return, are implementing this Taskforce recommendation. 

“Don’t Hang on to Meds” is a campaign to promote the reasons why it’s important to return medications and create awareness of medicine return drop-boxes. Versions of the campaign materials are available for posting in King County and also for other counties in the state of Washington.
