 Unused Medication Disposal

Washington County offers safe disposal options for unused or expired medications (prescription, over-the-counter and pet related). Old and unused medicines in your home can pose a risk for accidental poisoning, theft, and drug abuse. Research also shows that medication put in the trash or flushed can pollute water and harm fish and wildlife. You can help. Bring unwanted medications to a drop box for secure storage and disposal by a licensed incinerator.
Drop off locations include Hugo City Hall, 14669 Fitzgerald Avenue North, Hugo, MN.  Hours are 8:00am-4:30pm Monday through Friday.  The drop off  box is located in the lobby. For accepted items, visit the Washington County Medication Drop-off web page
