When our medicines are expired and we don’t need them anymore, we have to know how to throw them away properly. If we are careless, they could end up in the hands of our children or our pets, which can be very dangerous. So, to dispose of unwanted medication, here are the things you need to do:
- Place all of your unwanted pills in a plastic bag that can easily be sealed.
- Dissolve them in water or mix them with dirt to keep them away from young children and pets.
- Once you’re ready, you can seal the bag and throw it in the garbage bin.
- Don’t forget to remove all the personal information in the pills’ original bottle before disposing of it.
