Prescription or over-the-counter drugs flushed down the drain eventually enter our local water bodies, endangering aquatic life and water quality. Medications contain chemicals that cannot be removed during the water treatment process. In order to minimize the potential negative and irreversible impacts, unused or expired medications should be:
- Taken to Lost Hills Sheriff’s station, 27050 Agoura Rd, for proper disposal. Search additional drug take-back locations near you.
- Placed in a sealable container or bag and then placed in the trash.
