Safe Medicine Disposal Ordinance

On December 20, 2016, Contra Costa County passed the Safe Medicine Disposal Ordinance. The Safe Drug Disposal ordinance ensures producers of pharmaceutical drugs implement a safe drug disposal stewardship plan. Stewardship programs may be run by individual producers, together with other producers or by a stewardship organization that is designated by the producer(s). Stewardship plans must be submitted for review to Contra Costa Environmental Health (CCEH). If the stewardship plan satisfies conditions in Safe Drug Disposal ordinance the plan will be approved for operation.

The stewardship plan must provide free easily accessible disposal options for residents of unincorporated Contra Costa County. Disposal options include drop off kiosks, mail back services, and take back events. Public use of these disposal methods will reduce the number of unwanted drugs that are disposed of properly.
