The Safe Disposal Work Group focuses on issues relating to the safe storage and disposal of prescription medications with the potential for misuse, abuse, or diversion.    

The Safe Disposal Work Group’s goals for 2016-17 are to:

  • Support the expansion of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Medication Take-Back Program
  • Promote Colorado’s disposal activities nationally; and
  • Update the safe disposal brochure.

The Safe Disposal Work Group meets every other month (in person and by teleconference), with occasional exceptions. The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule are available on the left-hand side of this page.
