D.U.M.P (Dispose of Unused Medications Properly)

Improper disposal of medication is a growing concern which can lead to environmental problems and contribute to prescription drug abuse, especially among teens and young adults.

The D.U.M.P. program is designed to provide Summit County residents with a safe and easy option for disposing of unwanted medications. Simply take the medicine to one of the 14 D.U.M.P. box locations in the county, and it will be safely destroyed, no questions asked.  The locations are permanent and are accessible seven days a week.

Just be sure to keep the medicines in their containers and mark out any identifying information.  Please note that the D.U.M.P. boxes are for pills, capsules, or liquids only; syringes cannot be accepted at the D.U.M.P. boxes.  For syringe disposal, call 330-926-5600.
