DISPOSING OF UNWANTED MEDICATION

It used to be considered acceptable to flush medications.  I even heard from one source that it was advisable to fill a Ziploc bag, add water and allow the pills to dissolve and discard in the regular household trash.  These options are obviously not green-friendly ways to go.  Now you can take your expired, unused, or unwanted medication to any Group Health pharmacy.  Bartell Drugs also has a drug disposal box.  You can also call Washington Department of Ecology 1-800-732-9253 for additional information on how and where to dispose of medication.
