Medication disposal

Medication Disposal Bin

Menlo Park partners with MED-Project to offer a free, safe, and convenient location for residents to dispose of unwanted or expired medication from households by way of the San Mateo County Safe Medicine Disposal Ordinance.

San Mateo County entered an agreement with MED-Project LLC to provide kiosks throughout the County for disposal of household pharmaceutical products.

A secured drop box is now located in the Police Lobby at 701 Laurel St. Drop-offs can be made during regular business hours, Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. No after-hours drop offs can be made.

Contact MED-Project for additional drop off facilities and take back events.

The kiosk accepts medications in any dosage form in their original container or sealed bag. No herbal remedies, vitamins, supplements, cosmetics or other personal care products; compressed cylinders, aerosols, and inhalers; medical devices; sharps; illicit drugs; or iodine-containing medications will be accepted. Staff will be on hand to assist with any questions.

MED-Project is a pharmaceutical product stewardship organization that is financed by the pharmaceutical producers operating in several jurisdictions. The mission of MED-Project is to implement an accessible, convenient, and comprehensive program for the collection of household generated pharmaceutical waste.
