How do you dispose of your presrciption bottles?

I peel off the label with all of the info on it; wad it up and wrap it in tape; then wrap it in a wet paper towel and put it in the bottle and toss it in the trash.

  • Peel off the label & tear it up & wash it out. My husband reuses them during hunting season (for scent dispersion)   I think you do a lot just for a bottle & label with all the tape and wrapping stuff.

  • We just toss them... If we are getting a refill or a new Rx of the same I try to remember to take them with me so we can reuse them, but otherwise I just toss them.

    Why would anyone go through all that trouble?

  • My RX labels have just has much info on them as a piece of mail that people steal identities from. I guess I am just over paranoid.
