You should keep the following in mind when transporting unwanted medications for disposal:

  • While it is perfectly acceptable to combine all pills into one resealable plastic bag, if you get pulled over it might be easier to explain if you keep them in the original container with the medication’s name visible.
  • Make sure the container is sealed and does not leak.
  • All patient information is removed or obscured.

Inhalers

Inhalers should be taken to the transfer station at the locations and times listed above. You can remove the cartridge from the case, and throw the case in the trash.
