Prescription Medication Disposal

Do you have old prescriptions? Need to dispose of leftover medications? No need to wait for our household hazardous waste collection events to properly dispose of old medications. These local law enforcement agencies and area groups collect medications all the time.

No sharp objects (needles, syringes) or liquids please! Some of the businesses may not accept controlled substances, so it’s always best to call first.

Important Tips

  • Store your medications inside their original bottles with the labels.
  • Noting the types of medications in the bottles is helpful in their disposal.
  • Block out your personal information on prescription labels (name, prescription number, etc.).

Did You Know?

Pharmaceuticals thrown in the trash can leach into the environment, killing bacteria that break down waste in sewage plants, damaging septic systems, contaminating nearby waterways and harming aquatic wildlife. They can also seep into ground water and contaminate drinking water; a 2008 Associated Press investigation found pharmaceuticals in the drinking water supplies of at least 41 million Americans. Always dispose of your unwanted/expired prescription medications properly!
