Before disposing of medication into the box please do the following:

To dispose of used syringes, please put them in an empty coffee can or detergent bottle, label it “Used Syringes”, tape the cover or cap on the container, and place in your garbage bin. Please do not put used syringes in your recycling bin.
Illegal drugs and/or drug paraphernalia can be put in a paper bag or other container for privacy before dropping them into the disposal box.
If you have a large amount to dispose of, please put them in more than one bag so the container does not jam.
