Guidelines for Unused or Expired Prescription Medication Disposal

If you have unused or expired prescription medication, whether it is for you or your pets, it should be properly disposed of. It is not safe to keep these around your house as they can end up in the hands of the wrong people (i.e., children) or possibly even consumed by pets.

Please do NOT flush medications down the toilet as they can end up in our water supplies, lakes, rivers and the ocean. Instead they should be properly disposed of. Many law enforcement facilities offer a convenient free drop-off service. We recommend you contact the facility to find out when they accept drop-offs.
