What is Inmar Intelligence’s LifeinCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back Program?

This program offers consumers the ability to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired medication.

How do I dispose of my expired or unwanted medicine?

There are a number of ways to dispose of expired or unwanted medications. You can utilize convenient kiosks, mail-back services, or take-back events. Enter your zip code here (link to zip code search) to see what is offered in your area.

Why should I dispose of unwanted or unneeded medications in my home?

Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment. Unused or expired prescription medications can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse. If unused prescription drugs are thrown in the trash, they can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Additionally, there are environmental impacts. Flushing unused drugs contaminates the water supply.

Are there disposal locations near me?

Find drug disposal kiosk drop-off sites in your area here (link to the zip code search feature).

Is this service free?

The service is provided at no cost to you.

Should I remove my personal information before disposing of my medication?

When destroying medication, please make every attempt to safeguard your Protected Health Information (PHI). Remove any personally identifiable information on medication labels or product packaging before disposing.

What does Inmar Intelligence trace about me?

We don’t trace anything about you. We use the information entered to send an envelope. We never open the envelope later.

Is the package I send my medication in opened after I send it?

No, the envelope is destroyed immediately after being received.

What does Inmar Intelligence report?

We only report how many envelopes were sent back during the year and the total weight. We do not report anything about you.

Where else can I find information about the safe disposal of expired or unwanted medicines?

For further information about safe medication storage and destruction practices, please see the U.S. Food & Drug Administration information page, Poison Control Center information page, and the DEA information page. (link to FDA and DEA Information)
