Medicine Disposal

Medicine Disposal Program:  

Recent research by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) shows trace amounts of medicines in many of the Country‚Äôs waterways.  Much of this is due to the disposal of unused medicines into the sanitary sewer system which eventually leads to our waterways such as streams, creeks, rivers, reservoirs, bays and beyond.


One thing you can do to help is to properly dispose of your unused perescription medicines, over the counter medicines and vitamins. 


Don't Flush Your Old Medications!

Disposal Procedures:

  • Remove excess packaging like boxes and bottles.
  • Consolidate pills in ziplock bag or tied off bag.
  • Leave liquid medicines in their original containers
