NATIONAL CLEAN OUT YOUR MEDICINE CABINET DAY

NATIONAL CLEAN OUT YOUR MEDICINE CABINET DAY

National Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet Day occurs annually on the third Friday in April. The day aims to raise awareness and effectively rid homes of unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medications sitting in medicine cabinets, nightstands, or kitchen cabinets that have the potential for misuse or abuse by family members, friends, or visitors.

How to Do It Right

How you dispose of your expired or unused medications is just as important as why. Environmental studies show that flushed medications flow into our water supply. They negatively impact the fish we eat and the water we drink. When discarded in the trash, medications leach into and contaminate the soil.


At-home drug disposal solutions offer a simple, convenient and effective way of disposing of unwanted medications. If you have large quantities of leftover medications or as a supplement to at-home drug disposal, you may also consider participating in the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA’s) National Drug Takeback Day generally held in the spring and fall of each year.

HOW TO OBSERVE #CleanOutMedsDay

  • Take time during National Clean Out Your Medicine Cabinet Day to help remove your home of risks associated with leftover medications and do your part to help fight drug addiction.
  • Review your medications—as well as those of your pets—wherever you store them.
    • Medicine cabinet
    • Nightstand
    • Kitchen cabinets.
  • Then easily and effectively dispose of any leftover or expired medications by using an at-home disposal solution like DisposeRx.
