Improper disposal may be hazardous to our local community and wildlife by contaminating water sources. Contamination could occur through flushing medications down toilets and drains or leachate collected in aquifers from landfills.
Lexington County Sheriff's Department Community Action Team facilitates the Project Rid-A-Med to assist citizens to properly dispose of unwanted prescription medications. See this list of Lexington County Collection Sites for medications.
The Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) also provides helpful information in Proper Disposing of Unwanted Medicine.
