The City of Carlsbad recognizes the need to provide residents with a safe and convenient method to dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired pharmaceuticals. The current accepted practice for disposing of pharmaceuticals is to utilize the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department drop-off program. Please do not dispose unwanted pharmaceuticals down the toilet, this has detrimental environmental effects on recycled and treated water.
Residents are able to drop-off pharmaceuticals anonymously 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Drop-box locations and more information on the drop-box program can be found on the San Diego County Sheriff’s website.
