Check the Package

If there are any specific instructions for disposal on the label, package, or package insert, please follow those instructions. Do not flush any medication down the sink or toilet unless the information on the packaging specifically instructs you to do so.

Never place sharps in the trash or recycling, and never flush them down the toilet. Disposing of sharps in the trash or recycling may put trash and sewage workers, janitors, housekeepers, household members, and children at risk of being harmed.

To protect your privacy, patients are reminded to remove all personally identifiable information on medication labels or packaging before disposing of unwanted medicines.
