Flushing drugs down the toilet can contaminate water supplies and endanger public health and wildlife. The same can happen when drugs are disposed of in landfills.
Now you can dispose of your expired prescription and over-the-counter drugs in an environmentally responsible way. Bring unneeded and/or expired drugs (be sure the drug name is included) to the Expired Prescription & Over The Counter (OTC) Drug Disposal Drop Box in the Student Health Center and know you are protecting the environment and public health. These drugs will be taken to Washington Hospital for proper disposal.
This service is offered free of charge to everyone in the Ohlone College community and to the public at large.
