When medicines are expired or no longer needed, they should be disposed of promptly and properly. Consumers and caregivers should remove expired, unwanted or unused medicines from the home as quickly as possible to help reduce the chance that others accidentally take or intentionally misuse the unneeded medicine.  In addition, disposing of medicines properly aids in reducing the negative impact on our environment. Medicines flushed down the toilet, poured down the drain, or discarded in the trash (ending up in a landfill) can negatively affect our water sources, people, and animals.
