So how do I dispose of unwanted or expired medications?
1. PLEASE DO NOT THROW MEDICATIONS AWAY!
Medications can end up in the hands of children, animals or drug users. Drugs that make it into the landfill can contaminate the soil and groundwater.
2. PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH MEDICATIONS!
Disposing of medications in the sink or toilet can be very harmful to the environment!
3. DO Drop off your unwanted and expired medication at local law enforcement agencies to be properly destroyed. They accept all prescription, non-prescription, over-the-counter (pills, liquids, ointments or lotions) including pet medications. Please make sure that the medication is properly sealed and does not leak.
4. They CANNOT accept syringes, asthma inhalers, drugs in aerosol canisters or chemotherapy drugs in either IV liquid or oral form. Contact your pharmacist to dispose of these medications.
