Medication Disposal

Pharmacies are prohibited by Federal Drug Enforcement Agency rules from accepting unused, unneeded or expired prescription drugs.

Here are some suggestions from the Office of National Drug Control policy and http://www.smarxtdisposal.net/:

  • Take unused, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs out of their original containers and throw them in the trash. Mixing prescription drugs with undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter, and putting them in impermeable, nondescript containers, such as empty cans or seal-able bags; will further ensure the drugs are not diverted.
  • Do not flush or pour unused medications down a sink, drain or toilet.
    • Please note that while the rule of thumb is not to flush, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that certain medications should be flushed due to their abuse potential. Please read the instructions on you medication and talk to your pharmacist.
  • Take advantage of community pharmaceutical take-back programs that allow the public to bring unused drugs to a certain location for proper disposal. Your local health department may know if a program is being scheduled in your community. Some communities have pharmaceutical take-back programs or community solid-waste programs that allows the public to bring unused drugs to central location for proper disposal. Where these exist, they are a good way to dispose of unused pharmaceuticals.

Always refer to printed material accompanying your medication for specific instructions.
