NH Guidelines for the Disposal of Unneeded Medicine in Homes
6 Steps to Help Prevent Pollution, Poisonings, and Drug Abuse!
- Pour medicine into a sealable plastic bag.
- If the medicine is solid, add a small amount of water to dissolve it.
- Add coffee grounds, kitty litter, or something similar to the liquid medicine in the plastic bag.
- Seal the bag and immediately dispose of it in the trash.
- Use a marker to black out any personal information on the empty medicine container prior to disposing of it in the trash.
- For more information, consult Medicine Disposal Information for New Hampshire. Disposal information for household generated sharps may also be found at the above site.
Do NOT flush medicine down the toilet unless accompanying product information instructs otherwise. Don’t keep unneeded medications in the home.
Medicine collection events staffed by law enforcement, if readily available, are also good options for safely disposing of unwanted medicine.
In case of an accidental poisoning or for information about your medications, call the poison center at 1-800-222-1222.
