Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment. Take this opportunity to clean out your medicine cabinet and safely dispose of unused or unneeded medications!

Facts:

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.

Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.

The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends — and the home medicine cabinet.

Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold.

Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.
