Household pharmaceutical wastes

Does anyone know of an alternative for households to dispose of old 
prescription medications? Do pharmaceuticals take them or can they 
go down the drain?  What about chemotherapy type drugs or certain 
p-listed ones such as epinephrine (adrenalin) or nitroglycerine?

Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!!
