Donation Items We Cannot Accept

We cannot accept EXPIRED medications from clinics, nursing homes, hospice care or physician’s offices. We will accept medications from churches and other groups who are collecting expired medication from their members for safe disposal. We encourage and assist with disposing medication properly to keep our community and environment safe.

We cannot accept narcotics or controlled substances. Take these to your local police station. Police stations have collection receptacles specifically for medications. Call your local police station for a collection site if it does not have this service.

We cannot accept ANY medical supplies that are in opened packages, specific patient built orthopedic assists (shoes, for instance) or wooden crutches. These items cannot be sterilized.  Please put these in the appropriate recycle bin.
