Safe Medication Disposal

Don’t flush or throw away those unwanted or unused medications. Protect the environment and prevent drug abuse and overdose by using our safe medication disposal box, located near the drop-off counter in the pharmacy. The box is available when the University Health Center is open. There is no need to speak to anyone to deposit the medications.

We accept prescription medications (both controlled and non-controlled), OTC medications and liquids less than 4 oz in a Ziplock bag. We cannot accept illegal drugs, needles or syringes, sharps containers, medical devices or batteries, aerosol cans or inhalers, chemicals, mercury-containing devices, radio-pharmaceuticals and liquid antineoplastic agents.
