Residential Medication Mailback

When you’re dealing with any sort of medical condition, it’s almost a guarantee that medication will pile up. Figuring out what to do with medication that’s no longer needed or expired may seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. A residential medication mailback service makes it convenient and affordable to get rid of whatever medication is clogging your cabinets. 

How Residential Medication Mailback Works 

The process for residential medication doesn’t differ much from any other mailback service. A medical waste disposal provider sends you a secure container designed for medication. Once you receive it, you fill it with whatever medication you no longer need. Once the container is full, you ship it back, typically through USPS or another residential shipping provider. 

What Medication Qualifies for Mailback Services 

Nearly all medication qualifies for a mailback service, particularly as the FDA no longer recommends flushing or trash disposal for most medications. The exceptions being those listed on the FDA’s flush list.

Ensuring proper disposal of medications is important, both for the safety of your community and the environment. Many medications can cause serious health issues if consumed by the wrong person. A significant number of medications are also toxic to the environment if they are left in the landfill. 

A mailback service ensures this doesn’t happen. Once a disposal provider receives the container, they’ll dispose of the medication properly, typically through an incineration process.
