Is it safe to flush out oxymorphone tablets?

I found some pills in my med. cabinet . Round ,white with the # 262 on one side and underscored on that one side while with no markings on the other side. Most of the information that i m finding about them seems to lead me to believe that they are oxymorphone, but I don t know how that such a high powered pill wound up in my medacine cabinet! Now the big question, how do I get rid of them? Been told that flushing this type thing is a bad idea! SOOO WHAT TOO DO???
