How do I dispose of old medications?

Unused medicines can be brought to the Household Hazardous area at the Waste Control Transfer Station every Tuesday and Saturday, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Place the medicine into a container, such as a plastic soda bottle, with enough water to dissolve the medicines, and secure the lid with strong, sturdy tape. Unwanted or unused medicines can also be brought to the Longview Police Department, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
