Maine Drug Take-Back Programs

Expired or unwanted prescription drugs should be deposited at drug take-back locations so that they can be disposed of properly. Flushing old drugs is ill-advised as it puts our groundwater at risk. Holding onto old or unwanted medication may lead to it falling into the wrong hands.

We would like to recommend that you take any unwanted medications to the following locations for proper disposal:

Mount Desert Police Department

21 Sea Street

Mount Desert, Maine 04662

Ellsworth Police Department

1 City Plaza

Ellsworth, Maine 04605
