The Adams County Health Department is once again a disposal site for excess and expired prescription and over-the-counter medications during normal business hours, Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. 

Individual residents are encouraged to safely dispose of unwanted medications in the MedReturn Drug Collection Unit located in the lobby. Medicines can be placed in the Unit in their original containers. Liquid medication should be placed in a zip-lock bag with the lid of the bottle securely tightened.





Adams County Health Department was formed by a tax referendum in 1944. The mission of the department is Disease and Injury prevention, Health Protection and Health Promotion.


There are approximately fifty employees in these divisions: Clinical and Environmental Services, Family Health and Community Education, and Supportive Services.

Our department is governed by a Board of Health, a medical director and a public health administrator. Revenue comes from the local health tax levy, fees for services and program grants.
