Never dispose of medications by flushing them down the drain or toilet. You can put unused or expired medications in the garbage. If you do that:

  • Seal the original child-proof container with tape, or
  • Crush the pills and put them into a container with old coffee grounds or something that kids would never eat
  • Put in a plastic bag within your regular garbage. You may want to black out any personal identification with a marker.

Needle Disposal


It is illegal for syringes, needles, or lancets to be disposed of with household garbage or recyclables.

  • Take to the Community Memorial Hospital Emergency Room for no charge. The needles must be in a sharps puncture proof container.  Many local stores carry these containers such as Walmart & local pharmacies, or
  • Most local pharmacies also accept needles. Call your local pharmacy for details of required containers and charges.
