Safe Medication Disposal at Walgreens

The Walgreens on the corner of Meridian and W San Carlos (1399 W San Carlos St San Jose, CA 95126) now offers a safe medication disposal container where you can safely and anonymously dispose of medications. The container is located near the pharmacy counter but is self service and available to use whenever the store is open, even if the pharmacy is closed.

Protect your family against misuse of all medications by safely disposiqng of prescription and OTC medications at select Walgreens pharmacies.
