    Samaritan’s Purse / World Medical Mission is a Christian evangelical organization that is accepting empty pill bottle donations (no labels, no sticky residue). I tried finding a non-religious group but have had no success. I called a local animal hospital and they also said no.

    As of December 2015 the Malawi Project is no longer accepting pill bottles. I’ve got nearly a hundred because my friends give them to me for Malawi. Now I’m looking for other charities to donate them to. You’ve given me some ideas and I thank you!

    Where can I send empty prescription bottles. Would rather they be used for something good instead of just recycled .

  8. We have been saving empty pill bottles to send to the Malawi Project and would like to send them to you. Could you provide us your address? Thank you very much.

    Hi, Mary — what kind of fundraiser — I have a super amount of the all orange clean prescription bottles that I was going to drop of at our Whole Foods in St. Paul, MN — if your cause can use them, please tell me how many you need and where to send them — I’m guessing 200 – 300 bottles — Mrs. Lynn Jensen, North St. Paul, MN

    Do you still need pill bottles for your fundraiser. If so, please include your mailing address so I can send them. We had been collecting and mailing them in to the Malawi project and have some ready to go.
    Thank you, Julie

    Do you still need pill bottles for your fund raiser? Please send me an email with mailing info. My brother’s church started saving them, but no one has followed up with what to do with them or where to send them, so I volunteered.

    Thank you,

    Hello, I just read that the Malawi Project no longer wants empty pill bottles. Is there anywhere else I can send my bottles?
