Prescription Drug Disposal?
Anyone know where to dispose of old prescription drugs? I called 311 and the woman said to take them to the dump at 4900 John McCormick Rd NE (Ft. Totten Transfer Station). The city’s website, however, says old medicines are not accepted there (http://dpw.dc.gov/page/acceptableprohibited-household-hazardous-waste-items) and that I should just put the drugs in the trash. I’ve never heard of doing that (I know in other municipalities the concern about drugs getting into the water supply counsels towards other disposal methods).
