Medication Disposal Program
The RIGHT way to clean out your medicine cabinet.
If you have unused, unwanted or expired drugs (over-the-counter or prescription), please don't flush them into our public septic system or throw them in the trash. Bring your unused or expired medications to Village Green. Rest assured, we'll see that they are processed appropriately using the MedSafe™ medication disposal system.
|An estimated 200 million pounds of unused medications are improperly disposed of each year, thereby threatening our ecosystems and overall health.|
With the MedSafe™ medication disposal system, you can be assured that your drugs are disposed of safely and properly. This method is:
- Safer for people – you don't have to worry about drugs falling into the wrong hands.
Safer for the environment – avoid the "trickle down" effect of improper drug disposal.
- The smart way to dispose of drugs (and their plastic containers) – for people who care about our planet and ecosystem.
We can accept over-the-counter and prescription products in any dosage, form and type of packaging, but they should be in their original containers. We do not accept injectables, inhalers, medical devices* or liquids* over 4 oz.
*Contact local household hazardous waste facility.
