WHY RECYCLE EXPIRED OR NO LONGER USED MEDICATIONS?

 

1.        Prescription drugs are abused more frequently than illegal drugs.

2.        Because nearly 1 in 5 teens has used powerful narcotic pain relievers for non-medical reasons.

3.        The most common item stolen from homes is prescription medication - 70% of teens obtain the medications from the homes of friends or relatives.

4.        It is safer for the environment.  Never flush medications - the medications will contaminate our drinking supply.

 

Let’s fight this drug problem together!!  Recycle.
