At the Junction Shopping Center – look for the booth near the Sheriff’s Community Service Unit and Bear’s Garden Florist. The Junction is located at the corner of Mono Way and Tuolumne Road, Sonora, CA. Look for signs!
Sharps will be accepted this year! Feel free to bring used needles (humans only – no pet sharps) to the Junction drop-off.
There will NOT be sharps accepted at the Groveland location.
-Participants are encouraged to drop off all prescribed and over the counter medication EXCEPT for intravenous solutions.
-Participants are encouraged to remove medications from their containers prior to disposal – but liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container.

One common source for abused prescription medications is the home medicine cabinet. Don’t be part of America’s drug abuse problem. Be part of the solution. Get rid of unused medications.
