Lincoln County Public Health is a participant in the Wyoming Medication Donation Program. This program aims to reduce medication waste and improve prescription access for low-income Wyoming residents who lack adequate prescription coverage by re-dispensing acceptable donated medications.
The program accepts:
*Sealed and in date prescription and over-the-counter medications
*Sealed and in date creams, ointments, inhalers, patches, injectables
*Unused medical supplies (diabetes test strips, ostomy & wound care supplies, etc.)
How to Donate Medications:
Step 1. Collect all unused medication. 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 above to be sure your items may be donated for re-dispensing. Please call 1-855-257-5041 if you have questions. Unacceptable donations will be incinerated. We cannot dispose controlled substances! Dispose at home or at a Drug Drop Box located at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s office.
Step 4. Donate to Lincoln County Public Health at either the Afton or Kemmerer locations.
