Operation Medicine Cabinet
Protect our waterways by keeping powerful pharmaceuticals and all medicines out of our water supply. This prevents them from reaching the aquifer system underground through septic tanks and other means. Bring us your old and unused medicines FOR FREE – even pet medicines!

Disposing of unused or expired prescriptions/medications properly is important. Bring your unwanted or unneeded medications to this free collection event. We’ll dispose of them—anonymously.
All medicines collected are taken, under law enforcement transport, for thermal destruction. In 2019, this thermal destruction occurred thanks to an agreement with the waste-to-energy facility in Bay County. All the plastic pill bottles are shredded for recycling; same with all medicines that come in aluminum sheets, and paper boxes.
Medicines are important to keep out of our water supply chain for health reasons. Yet they pose a safety risk in your home, too. Please read this important message, from a brave father.
Safe Water for Walton is pleased to embark on a 2019 community awareness campaign with Walton County School Board and Walton County Sheriff’s Office. Watch this space for more information, or Join Us in support of keeping kids safe.
