Properly disposing of medicines is important to human health and the environment. Here are a few tips from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency:

  • Don't flush medicines down the toilet or pour them down the drain.
  • Doing so could affect drinking water sources.
  • Don't throw medicines directly in the trash.
  • Doing so could lead to the poisoning of a child or pet, or drug abuse by a teen or adult.
  • Do find out how to properly dispose of medicines (PDF).
