How can I dispose of old medication?
Please DO NOT flush unwanted medications down the toilet. Howard County has four permanent medication disposal boxes (PILLS ONLY) to help residents dispose of unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications safely and anonymously. These are available daily and year-round. If you have sharps (needles, syringes and EpiPens), contact HC DrugFree and do NOT put them in the boxes.
