Medication and Sharps Disposal

Please safely discard unused medication and controlled substances away from children and pets.
For detailed information visit http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm101653.htm for guidance on disposal of unused medications. Home users of sharps (e.g. needles) are urged to place sharps in hard wall containers (e.g. laundry detergent bottle with screw on lid) before disposal in order to protect garbage collectors from needlesticks.
Call your county Department of Health or visit www.safeneedledisposal.org to learn more.
