Medicine Disposal

Dispose of any left-over prescription or over-the-counter medicine the safe way at Edgewood City Hall.  Disposing here keeps your meds from being misused or polluting the environment.  Look for the blue bin in the lobby.  It’s easy to use, just drop in old medicine by opening the front just like a mailbox.  No forms, no paperwork, no fuss. 

When operating on our standard schedule, City Hall is open to use the bin M-F from 8:00am to 4:30pm.  Please call the Edgewood PD at 253-798-4960 to set up an appointment to drop your medications off.  

There are many other medication disposal bins available throughout Pierce County.
