About MedReturn

The Medication Return Boxes in the Northern York County region of Maine is an initiative supported by the Northern York County Prescription Drug Coalition.

The coalition is a private/public partnership which formed as a result of a timely meeting of concerned citizens, business representatives and professionals in the Public Health and Public Safety fields. The group’s mission is to keep our environment cleaner and keep our communities safer by getting unwanted, unused, or expired drugs collected and properly disposed of so that they are not flushed into Maine’s environment and/or diverted to the street.

MedReturn Drop Boxes are anonymous and FREE. Please remember these simple procedures when dropping off your unwanted medications:
