Dispose of Medication

Dispose Safely. Prevent Abuse.

Dispose of unused or expired medications the safe way, by bringing them to an approved collection site.

Drugs that are thrown in the trash can be retrieved by others and sold, while flushing medications can potentially contaminate the water supply. By safely disposing, you will help prevent poisoning, misuse, and overdose in your community.
