Proper disposal of medication helps promote a healthy community! By removing unused medication from your home, you can reduce your likelihood for burglary along with reducing the chance for meds to be misused.
There are environmental benefits too! By not flushing or throwing away your medication, you save the environment and water supply from contamination.
