Three easy steps to properly store and get rid of medications:
Store your medications in a lock box or locked medicine cabinet.
Many pharmacies and law enforcement facilities operate year-round drug collection or drop-off programs. Find participating sites near you at Vermont Department of Health.
Or mail unused medication in a pre-paid envelope. Visit the Vermont Department of Health for details.
