Valley Medical Center is proud to partner with King County MED-Project with the installation of two medication drop-off kiosks on campus. Conveniently located at Prescription Pad North and the hospital’s main lobby, these bright blue kiosks allow individuals to bring expired, unused, or unwanted medicines to a centralized, secure location for appropriate disposal. The King County MED-Project provides education and outreach to the community, including emphasizing the importance of promptly and properly disposing of unwanted medicine.
