Disposal

Disposal

Safely disposing of expired or unused medicine is a critical step. Here’s how to safeguard your family and home, and decrease the opportunity for your teens or their friends to abuse your medicine.

  • Take an inventory of all of the medicine in your home. Start by discarding expired or unused Rx  and OTC medicine.
  • The ideal way to do this is by participating in a safe drug disposal program – either a drug take-back day organized by the DEA and local law enforcement or an ongoing program in your community, such as Operation Medicine Cabinet.
  • Do not flush medicine down the drain or toilet.


Oakland County is home to multiple safe drug disposal programs. Find one near you!
