Prescription Pill Disposal Program

Henderson Police Department is committed to safely disposing of unwanted and expired prescription
drugs. There are safer and more convenient ways to dispose of these drugs.

How to Dispose of Narcotic Pills and Patches:
If you need to dispose of narcotic pills or patches, contact Republic Services at 702-735-5151.

For all other unwanted and expired prescriptions or medicines
Follow these simple steps from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA):
1) Mix medicines:

Mix medicines (do not crush tablets or capsules) with an unpalatable substance such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter.
2) Seal mixture:
Place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag.
3) Throw away:
Throw the container in your household trash.

Upcoming prescription pill take-back events
