Proper Disposal of Prescription Drugs:

Federal Guidelines

  • Keep unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs in their original containers with the name of the medication in tact. Mark through or remove personal information such as names.
  • Mixing prescription drugs with an undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter, and putting them in impermeable, non-descript containers, such as empty coffee cans or sealable bags, will further ensure the drugs are not diverted.
  • DO NOT Flush prescription drugs down the toilet.
  • Prescription drugs WILL BE accepted at the semi-annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection events.

** Unless the label instructs differently, unused prescription drugs should be disposed of in the trash.
