Recycling Alert – Household Medication


Recycling Alert – Household Medication

Expired or no longer needed medication has long been a difficult type of item to dispose of. What’s the best way to get rid of old allergy pills or antibiotics we no longer need? Do they go in the trash? Do they go down the drain? Well, luckily for us, the Leesburg Police Department in partnership with CVS has taken all the worry from this situation. The police station in downtown Leesburg now has a household medication drop box where residents can drop off unwanted or expired medication at no cost, with no questions asked. They even take old animal medication!

So, if you spent your weekend cleaning out your bathroom, organizing your linen closet, or organizing your home overall and you ended up with some old aspirin, cold medicine, or prescription medication that you no longer want or need, simply gather it up and take it to the Leesburg Police station. You do not have to remove the containers, but be aware that they do not accept needles, liquids, ointments, or a few other items. Check out their flyer to see accepted medication types.

The next time you’re tackling a home organizing project and are wondering if some of the items you no longer need can be recycled, head over to the Links sections of the Organizing Maniac’s website where you’ll see a variety of items that can be disposed of in a more environmentally friendly way.

Happy Organizing!
