In the past, the public was encouraged to dispose of unwanted or expired
drugs by flushing them down the toilet, but we now realize that these
contaminants can end up in our streams, lakes, and groundwater. Despite the

In addition to the environmental benefits, proper disposal of unwanted drugs

and can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
