City of New Braunfel’s SUDS Program

The New Braunfels Fire Department offers a free, year-round medication disposal program which uses the SUDS (Single Use Disposal System). The program is available for residents to safely and securely dispose of expired or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medication at no cost.

The Importance of Safe Medication Disposal

When drugs are flushed down the toilet, the chemicals are difficult to filter out in wastewater treatment and traces may end up in our drinking water. When they are disposed in your garbage can, animals, children, and even other adults may gain access to medicine and become poisoned. Additionally, over time, loose medicines degrade into the landfill, through the ground and again into our ground water systems.


  • Do not flush medicines.
  • Do not place loose pills and liquids in your trash
