Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into the disposal box that will be located at the drop off site.

All solid dosage pharmaceutical product and liquids in consumer containers may be accepted. Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
