The Estacada Library has partnered with Med-Project of Oregon, a non-profit who has made it easy for Oregonians to mail away unwanted and expired medication. By disposing of your medication safely, you can prevent medication from entering our waterways and keep unsafe medication out of the hands of youth.
How does it work?
Come to The Estacada Library to pick up your free postage-paid envelope. Bring it home and fill the envelope with unwanted and expired medication. Next, mail your envelope to Med-Project who will dispose of the medication safely. Please do not bring any medication to the library. You can ask for an envelope at the Circulation Desk.

Herbal Remedies, vitamins, supplements, cosmetics, other personal care products, medical devices, batteries, mercury-containing thermometers, sharps, illicit drugs, pet pesticide products, animal medication, and biologics.
