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.
