Drug Disposal

Do not flush unused, unwanted, and expired medications down the toilet or put them in drains. How should I dispose of my medications?

Take your unused medications to a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center or Event; or put your unused medications in a sturdy, securely sealed container, then in a trash can where children and animals can’t reach them.

The drop-off events are free of charge. They are located throughout the County of Los Angeles.

To view a schedule of events, visit the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event Schedule.
