Medication Disposal Box
The medication disposal box at Drilling Pharmacy provides a safe and convenient way to properly dispose of any expired, unused, or unwanted over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, prescription patches, prescription ointments, and vitamins.
Items that are NOT accepted include illicit drugs and regulated medical waste such as sharps and hazardous waste.
DisposeRx is a site-of-use drug disposal solution for unused, unwanted, or expired medications. The DisposeRx powder is non-toxic and non-hazardous. The innovative technology includes cross-linking polymers that activate in water in the presence of unused medication in the original prescription vial in less than 30 seconds. To use you simply add water to the vial of unwanted medication until it is two-thirds full, add the packet of DisposeRx powder and then shake for 30 seconds before disposing of the vial with your household trash. Two dispose Rx packets per month are free to Iowa residents.
