Dispose of unwanted, expired medicines
The Dallas Library, through MED-Project, offers free, safe and convenient Medicine Mail-Back envelopes for the disposal of unwanted and expired medicines from households.
All mail-back envelopes are prepaid and pre-addressed, are given out free of charge, and comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and other legal requirements. Residents simply ask for the envelopes at the circulation desk. They then take the envelopes home, put their medications in the envelope, and then place in the mail.
Written instructions are included inside each envelope. Note: The envelopes cannot be used to return pre-filled injector products or inhalers. (Do not bring the medications or the filled envelopes to the library.) A government disposal and incineration site receives the pre-addressed envelopes.
MED-Project is organized as a tax-exempt entity that develops, implements, and operates stewardship programs for unwanted pharmaceutical products from households as mandated by local and state legislation.
