Proper Disposal of Prescription Drugs

The best way to dispose of prescription drugs is to take advantage of our MTAC drug take back program, or bring them to any Nassau County Police Department and dispose of them in a drop box in the lobby. Please note NCPD does not take liquids, ointments or needles. 

The Federal Guidelines state "Do not flush prescription drugs down the toilet or drain unless the label or accompanying patient information specifically instructs you to do so". For information on how to drugs that can be flushed, click here to visit the FDA’s website.
