Pill Bottles

Disposal Options

Items must be at least two inches in two dimensions to belong in the recycling bin. If your pill bottle is at least two inches wide and two inches tall, it meets the minimum size requirements, and it is accepted with blue-bin recycling. Pill bottles under the size requirement can be placed in your household trash.

Preserve Gimme 5 offers drop-off locations as well as mail-in options for pill bottle recycling. Matthew 25: Ministries is another mail-in option that accepts pill bottles for reuse or recycling.


The fee associated with your town drop-off or curbside collection service applies for this item.
