How to properly dispose of drugs:
1. Remove the medicine from its original container and mix it with an undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter.
2. Place the mixture in a sealable bag, empty bag, or other containers to prevent the medicine from leaking or breaking out of the garbage bag.
