Do you have any suggestions as to where I can drop off empty prescription bottles to be recycled? I have a LOT of them.

If you live in a single-family home in Mission Viejo, empty prescription bottles can be recycled in your curbside recycling cart. If you live in a multi-family complex in Mission Viejo, prescription bottles can be placed in the community recycling bin. You may wish to black out your name on the label.
