Tip of the Day: Safely Dispose Medication


Posted on : 24-08-2010 | By : georginesaves | In : Tip of the day

Tossing drugs in the trash, especially in their original containers, is NOT a good idea! Flushing them down the toilet is a no-no too as it contaminates the water supply and fish streams. So what do you do? Place the loose pills in a resealable plastic bag and mix them with coffee grounds or kitty litter. This will make them unappealing to children or animals. Seal the bag. Then throw in the garbage. Another solution is to check with your city if they have a recycling program for drugs.
