The Mississippi Department of Public Safety (DPS) has
set up drop off locations around the state of Mississippi
for disposal of unwanted, expired, and unused household
medications at the agency’s Driver’s License Renewal
Locations. Citizens may bring unwanted prescription and
over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and other similar
medicinal items (liquid or solid form) to any of the
participating locations so the drugs may be disposed of
safely.
Prescription Drugs

dangers to citizens
Medication Drop-Offs are located at
all Driver’s License Testing Centers
in the State.
Look for a Green Kiosk (pictured
right) or Metal Safe Drop-Box
(pictured below) at your local
location.
For a location nearest you, please
find an alphabetical listing of dropoff locations on the reverse side of
this sheet.
Unused drugs that are stored
around the home may present
a danger to people as well as
to the environment when
disposed. Removing unused
medications from the home
can help prevent intentional
misuse and unintentional
poisonings of children and
pets. However, dumping
these medications down the
drain or flushing it down the
toilet can become a source of
water
contamination.
Research is continuing into
whether
such
water
contamination
adversely
impacts human
aquatic life.

or
Because of these potential
concerns, MDEQ encourages
citizens to participate in this
drop-off program for your
expired or other unused drugs.
