Properly disposing of medicines is important to human health and environmental protection. 
  • Don’t flush medicines down the toilet or drain. Doing so could affect drinking water sources.
  • Don’t throw medicines directly in the trash. Doing so could lead to the poisoning of a child or pet, or drug abuse by a teen or adult.
