Safe Medicine Disposal Information

Safe disposal refers to the manner in which unused, unwanted, or expired medications (ie. prescription Rx, over-the-counter, pet meds, etc.) can be removed from the home and disposed of in a safe way.

 
SOLID MEDICATIONS:
– Leave medications in the container
– Remove any personal information
– Bring to your local Medicine Drop Box location
 
SYRINGE/NEEDLES:
– Ask your pharmacist about safe needle disposal boxes.
– Find a Safe Syringe Disposal Program near you.
 
LIQUID MEDICATIONS:
– In a sealable bag or coffee can, make the medicine appear unattractive by mixing with coffee grounds or kitty litter.
– Dispose in household trash.

IMPORTANT:
While most Drop Box locations are 24-hour, please be mindful of hours of operation listed.
 
Do not “dump” meds outside of the Drop Box or Police Station. Any medications left outside of Medicine Drop Box may be confiscated as evidence.
