Unused Prescription Drugs Disposal

Proper Disposal of Unused Prescription Drugs:

Federal prescription drug disposal guidelines urge Americans to follow the instructions listed below when disposing of prescription drugs:

  • Take unused, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs out of their original containers.
  • Mix the prescription drugs with an undesirable substance, like used coffee grounds or kitty litter and put them in impermeable, nondescript containers, such as empty cans or sealable bags, further ensuring that the drugs are not diverted or accidentally ingested by children or pets.
  • Throw these containers in the trash.
