Medication Disposal

If you have medications to dispose, such as after the death of a loved one, or when the medicine is no longer needed, PLEASE take them to the Sheriff’s Office, the Wellston Police Department, or the Jackson County Health Department.

U.S. EPA’s final rule for ‘Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals’ prohibits health care facilities and reverse distributors, as defined by U.S. EPA, from flushing, pouring, or draining hazardous pharmaceutical wastes down a toilet, sink, tub, or other drains as a disposal option.

This new rule will become effective in Ohio on August 21, 2019.
