How should the medication be packaged for disposal?

Before bringing medication to the PD: Please empty your pill containers into Zip Lock type bags, quart size bags or smaller are preferred. Multiple prescriptions can be put into the same bag. Leave the pill bottles at home, they will not fit into our medication receptacle. If you have liquid medication, leave it in the bottle, but seal the lid with tape. Put sealed liquid medication bottles into a separate baggie.  Please see "What Medicine is not accepted?"
