Do not flush unused, unwanted, and expired medications down the toilet or put them in drains!
Although flushing medication was a common practice used in the past, new studies show that prescription and over-the-counter drugs are not completely removed when passing through waste water treatment plants. Harm to marine and plant life can be caused by improper disposal.
Drug abuse isn't just about street drugs, over-the counter medication are the most commonly abused drugs in the U.S. They can be very addictive and dangerous! Keeping expired or unused medication can lead to accidental drug overdose by children, drug abuse, theft and illegal distribution. Keep your family safe.
