Medicine Return

Free Medicine Return Program in Bothell


Protect your family, protect the community, and protect the environment by returning unwanted medicines at safe disposal locations.  Bothell citizens can properly dispose of unwanted medicines locally for free at the Bothell Police Department located at 18410 101st Ave NE (narcotic and non-narcotic medicines accepted).

Steps to Dispose of Unwanted Medications


  1. Gather all unwanted medications from wherever you have them stored (drawers, medicine cabinet, etc)
  2. Check the list to see which items are accepted. Narcotics and prescribed controlled substances (Oxycontin, vicodin, etc) are accepted only at law enforcement locations (including Bothell Police Department)
  3. Bring accepted items to the most convenient location. Leave items in their original containers. You will have an opportunity to mark out any personal information. Do not mark out the names of the medication. No questions will be asked, though your zip code will be recorded for research purposes.
  4. Place the items into the secure double locked collection box.
