Unwanted or expired pills, creams, lotions, salves, cough syrups, and other medication require proper disposal. Needles (syringes) also need to be disposed of correctly. These items should not be flushed or disposed of in the garbage as they will not be properly treated and can harm human and environmental health.

Many types of medicines for people, pets, and farm animals can be dropped off at the Peterborough City/County Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste Depot at 400 Pido Road or the seasonal MHSW sites free of charge. For locations and hours of operation call County of Peterborough Environmental Services at 705-775-2737 or visit www.county.peterborough.on.ca.
