In most cases, unwanted medication should be placed in the trash.
There are three exceptions:
• Head Lice Shampoo -
accepted at the RCSWD HHW rural collections (RCSWD residents only)
and at the RCSWD HHW Gleason Rd site. No fee for RCSWD residents.
• Chemotherapy Drugs -
return to pharmacy or cancer clinic
• Anti-neoplastic Medicine
- return to pharmacy or cancer clinic
NOTE: Please do not flush unwanted medication down the drain. Medications
can pass through water treatment plants and enter the environment,
harming wildlife. It also may disrupt your septic system or the
water treatment facility. If you are uncomfortable discarding the
medication in the trash, you may bring it to the RCSWD HHW Gleason
Rd depot or to the RCSWD HHW rural collections.
