As the end-of-the-year approaches, I went through our medicine cabinets and found a lot of medication (both prescription and OTC) that expire in 2009 or January 2010.
I think I read that you should not dispose of drugs in the trash, because it can hurt the environment (or, someone can get a hold of prescription drugs out of your trash).
I think I read also that you should not dispose of drugs by flushing the pills or liquid down the toilet, as that can hurt the environment, too.
What is the proper way to dispose of expired medications?
