What Do I Do With My Unused Medication?

Don't Flush It!  Drop It Off!

Unused drugs that remain in medicine cabinets are susceptible to theft and misuse. To prevent medications from getting into the wrong hands, the Prevention Coalition of Mercer County urges residents to properly dispose of expired and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs quickly and anonymously at one of the following drop boxes.

Simply bring in your household prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

For at-home disposal:

Crush pills and tablets or add water to dissolve them.

Mix crushed or dissolved drugs with an undesirable substance, such as cat little or used coffee grounds.

Put the mixture into a disposable container with a lid or use a sealable bag.

Throw the sealed container with the drug mixture in the trash.
