Wyoming Medication Donation Program

Donor Toolkit  


Acceptable donations of unused medications can be re-dispensed to Wyoming residents in need of help with prescriptions medication.  Unacceptable donations are donated to missions if possible or will be disposed of via incineration.  All Medication Donations are sorted by the Wyoming Medication Donation Program Staff.

Step 1. Collect all unused medication and remove or mark out patient identifying information (name, address, phone number, and prescription number).  Be sure to leave the drug name on the container! 

Step 2.  Review the categories of acceptable medications below to be sure your items may be donated for re-dispensing.  Not sure if your medication is acceptable?  Please call us at 1-855-257-5041.  Unacceptable donations will be disposed of properly.  We cannot dispose controllrolled substances.  Please take them to law enforcement for disposal.  Click here for a link to the DEA controlled substances list. Click HERE for a list of Drug Drop Boxes located in WY law enforcement offices.
