Drop Off Your Old Prescriptions

Got old prescription drugs that need to be destroyed?




Citizens now have a safe and easy way to dispose of expired, unused medications. Help keep them out of the wrong hands and protect your family and the environment.

Permanent drop-boxes are located in the lobby of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office and inside the Asheville Police Department by the Evidence Management section. Medicine can be dropped off Monday through Friday during regular business hours.

For more information, Buncombe County Sheriff's Department at 250-6670.
