Prescription Drugs
Safely store and throw away unused or expired medicine. It prevents misuse.

Here are three steps you can take to ensure the safe use, storage, and disposal of prescription drugs.

1. SAFE USE
Only take medication prescribed to you by a doctor. Only use it in the prescribed dosage. And never share prescription drugs with friends and family.

2. SAFE STORAGE
Store prescription medication locked and out of reach of kids, family, and guests. Know where it is at all times. Keep it in its original bottle with its label.

3. SAFE DISPOSAL
Most Prescription drugs should NOT be flushed down the toilet or washed down the sink. In Vermont, you can drop off your medications at a permanent disposal site. Proper disposal helps avoid harming water sources, wildlife, pets, and people.
