Medication Drop Box
Prescription drug drop-off is available Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
A permanent drop-box in the department lobby (1117 Jackson St. SE) is available for drop off and safe disposal of any unwanted or expired over-the-counter or prescription medications (including pet medications).
Personnel will collect and destroy the medications in a safe and legal manner by incinerating them at a nearby facility.
The drop box was donated by the United States Postal Service and refurbished by Oregon Powder Coating, Albany Lock and Key Service, and Xtreme Grafx.
Residents who need hypodermic needles and syringes (sharps) and need to safely dispose of used sharps can find help at many pharmacies in Albany, Corvallis and Philomath.
The table below was created from lists prepared by Samaritan Health Services Diabetes Education Program. The table shows which pharmacies have medical sharps available and the charge for accepting them for disposal.
For more information, please call the listed pharmacy directly or contact your doctor.
