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.

Whatcom County discourages the disposal of unused, expired, or contaminated pharmaceutical wastes in solid waste streams per County Regulations.

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