Health officials urge everyone to dispose of your unused or unwanted medication and medical waste safely and responsibly. Proper disposal helps prevent misuse and injuries, and it helps protect the environment. The Health Department does not accept medicines, needles/sharps, or other medical waste at our office.
However, these tips and resources can help you dispose of your medical waste properly.
Use a special a pill disposal bag, available for free at the Norwalk Health Department (137 East Avenue) during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm), while supplies last.
Drop off medications at the Norwalk Police Department Drug Drop Off Box at the station (1 Monroe Street).
