Home Disposal as Last Resort

Safe Disposal Locations

When you can’t access one of the safe disposal locations, do not flush your medicine and do not give it to friends or family to dispose for you. Follow the steps below to put it in the trash:

  1. Remove from the original container (make sure you remove the label or cross out any identifying information).
  2. Mix with something that can’t be eaten, like kitty litter, coffee grounds, saw dust, home cleanser, etc.
  3. Place the mixture in a sealable bag, empty can, or other durable container that prevents leakage.
  4. Wrap the container in newspaper or a plain brown bag to conceal its contents. Place it in your trash the day your trash is collected.

Mail-back envelopes can be purchased from some pharmacies. Ask your pharmacist for additional information.
