RESIDENTIAL MEDICAL WASTE DISPOSAL

Prescriptions should be sealed up with tape and placed into your blue garbage bag.  Never flush medications down the toilet or sink.  They will contaminate the drinking water supply.

Note:  Periodically, the Plantation Police Department will team up with the Drug Enforcement Administration to host a Drug Take Back Event.  This one day effort is to remove potentially dangerous prescription drugs from the neighborhood, waterways, and surrounding area, as well as keeping them away from children. The public can voluntarily surrender expired or unwanted drugs for destruction, either prescription or over the counter.  For upcoming dates and times, visit Plantation.org, or call the Plantation Police Outreach Center at 954-916-5601.

Needles need to be placed into a Sharps container and can be dropped off at:

  • Prescription Pad Pharmacy, 333 NW 70th Avenue, Ste 102, 954-791-2000
  • Cost is $5/2 containers. (Cost is waived if a new container is prchased.)

For more information on the property disposal of prescription medications, please contact the Broward County Health Department,  954-467-4700.
