Safely Dispose of Drugs

Last issue, I wrote about taking over responsibility for my dad’s medications. When it was time to dispose of it all, I had no idea what to do. I had read drugs (legal and otherwise) were ending up in our waterways, causing health issues for the entire food chain, including you and me and our pets.

Come to find out, in addition to national prescription drug take back days, local businesses offer year-round disposal. Click here to enter your zip code (or city) and state to find disposal sites near you.

Some drugs are unable to be disposed of at the year-round disposal sites. More information can be viewed here.
