  • For household pharmaceuticals, the interim recommendation is to NOT flush your medications to the sewer or septic tank. Rather, you can double bag your medications and place them directly into your exterior garbage can to avoid children or pets getting a hold of them. Ecology is currently facilitating a pilot project with local pharmacies for consumers wishing to properly dispose of their leftover medications. Visit for pilot take-back locations and more information.
