Does anyone know how to properly dispose of old pills, syrups, and such? I know you aren't supposed to flush them or throw them out with the regular trash but that is all I know. Any advice would be appreciated.
We are told to take them to the local fire department. Don't know if that is Colorado specific, but I took a box full to the local fire house and they thanked me for not flushing or just putting in the trash for kids to find.
Here in my county we have drug drop offs with staffed volunteer pharmacists and nurses along with county officials in charge of toxic waste disposal. Check with your local pharmacy if they know of drop off sites and times. PLEASE do not just drop these meds off at a local shelter...these drugs need to be monitored and disposed of properly. Shelter staff are not doctors or pharmacists who can verify drugs.
