Your best option to take your unused medication to a local take-back program. There are many permanent drop off locations across Georgia.
If you can’t get to a drop off location, mix your medicine with an undesirable substance like kitty litter, used grease or coffee grounds. Then throw it in the trash. This will make it less appealing to pets and children and less recognizable for anyone that may intentionally go through your trash.
The FDA, DEA, EPA, Office of Drug Control Policy and numerous state agencies recommend using medicine take-back programs as the best way to dispose of your unwanted medicine. Looking for more info? Get more guidance from Georgia’s Attorney General.
