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 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.
