Regulations vary from state to state and I suppose therefore from country to country. In my locale, my military hospital will accept old meds that they have dispensed. One local pharmacy will not accept any meds. There are public service announcements regularly on television about
how bad it is to dump them in the toilet or garbage. My last attampt to return old meds to the pharmacy for proper disposal resulted in them handing back the bag telling me to call my trash company for disposal instructions.
Testing of the sewage treatment facilities waste water here showed all kinds of drugs not normally occuring naturally. Please check you local regulations for proper disposal. It is also illegal to give, sell, or trade your prescribed medications with others here in the US.
