CCCSD's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facility Does NOT Accept Medications
The Federal Drug Enforcement Agency prohibits household hazardous waste collection facilities from accepting any controlled substances.* Because many prescription medications are classified as controlled substances but may not be labeled as such, we will no longer accept medications of any kind.
Disposal of Household Medications
Note: Businesses with medical waste should contact the Contra Costa County Department of Health Services (925-646-5225) for disposal options.
Thank you for helping us to protect public health and the environment!
