Medicines flushed or put in the trash can end up in our surface waters, groundwater and drinking water— exposing our families and hurting our environment.
Note: Residents may dispose of prescription medicines and non-prescription pills such as vitamins. Bring medicines in original containers or bags. Remove any personal identifying information. Keep liquids in original containers to avoid spills.
