Medsafe Medication Disposal
Open 7 days a week, from 6:00 AM until 8:00 PM, the Medsafe Medication Disposal is for discarding unused, unwanted, or expired prescription medication. The disposal is free, safe, and confidential. It is located on the first floor near the Laboratory Department’s entrance. Medications should be in their original prescription containers, loose pills should be placed inside sealed plastic bags, and liquids should be wrapped in a paper towel and sealed in a plastic bag.
Responsibly disposing of these medications is a great way to fight the opioid epidemic.

PREVENT ACCIDENTAL POISONING
MedSafe facilitates collection of unused and unwanted consumer medications including legally held controlled substances, providing a convenient method of disposal and ridding homes and medicine cabinets of potentially harmful drugs.
MedSafe allows the collection of legally held patient-prescribed and OTC pharmaceutical controlled substances (schedule II-V) from ultimate users for disposal in a safe and effective manner consistent with effective controls against diversion.
PREVENT WATER CONTAMINATION
MedSafe inner liners are treated per preferred method of disposal, incineration, which renders the pharmaceuticals non-retrievable and prevents unused medications from cycling back into our water.
