Responsible Drug Disposal

To avoid potential environmental impacts from improperly disposing medications we recommend:
  • DO NOT flush unused medications or pour them down the sink
  • Pour medications into a sealable plastic bag or container. If the medication is solid, add a small amount of water to help dissolve
  • Add kitty litter, sawdust, or coffee grounds
  • Seal the plastic bag or container and place in trash
  • Before recycling or trashing empty prescription bottles make sure to remove any personal information
