nything you have not used in the past 12 months.
  • Properly dispose of any prescription medications you no longer need. Do not share prescription medications with others.
  • Properly dispose of medicines no longer in their original container or that can no longer be identified.
  • Properly dispose of medicines that have changed color, odor or taste.
  • Do not flush unused or expired medications and do not pour them down a sink or drain.* They should be disposed of properly in the household trash or through your community's medication disposal program, when available. Follow these easy steps before disposing in the trash:      
    • Pour medication into a sealable plastic bag. If medication is a solid (pill, liquid capsule, etc.), add water to dissolve it.
    • Add kitty litter, sawdust, coffee grounds (or any material that mixes with the medication and makes it less appealing for pets and children to eat) to the plastic bag.
    • Seal the plastic bag and put it in the trash. 
    • Remove and destroy ALL identifying personal information (prescription label) from all medication containers before recycling them or throwing them away.

  • *Visit www.smarxtdisposal.net for more information and for a list of medications that should be flushed.
