How to Dispose
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.
It is illegal for syringes, needles, or lancets to be disposed of with household garbage or recyclables.
Take to the Froedtert Hospital Menomonee Falls Emergency Room for no charge. The needles must be in a sharps puncture proof container. Many local stores carry these containers such as Walmart and local pharmacies, or
Most local pharmacies also accept needles. Visit the DNR website for details of required containers and charges.
