2017 Oklahoma Drug Take-Back Pilot Program
Share |


Starting in December 2016, four Oklahoma pharmacies started collecting leftover pharmaceuticals from residents free of charge. Designed and implemented by the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), this drug take-back pilot program offers county residents convenient locations to dispose of their leftover medications – an important part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce the public health and environmental impacts of unwanted drugs.

Sponsored by DEQ, the six-month pilot program uses pharmacy-based collection receptacles and public education to facilitate the proper disposal of leftover pharmaceuticals. The locked collection receptacles, acquired through Assured Waste Solutions, allow residents to dispose of both over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription (Rx) drugs (schedule II-V).

A fifth pharmacy was added to the program in March 2017. Pharmacy locations include:
