Disposing of Expired Medications

Everybody’s got some old medications they no longer use, or have expired.  I’ve got some in a drawer that go back years.  One time I was at a conference in San Antonio, Texas and had a kidney stone.  If you’ve ever had a kidney stone you know they’re pretty painful.  By the time I got out of the hospital I was heading home with all kinds of pain relievers.  Also, by that time I had passed the stone so I no longer needed the pain meds.  That was 2010 and I still have them in that same drawer.  I even have meds from the veterinarian that our dogs no longer take.  In the old days we flushed them down the toilet.  Don’t even think about that now.  So what are you going to do with them?  Take them to your local police station and they will dispose of them for you.  It’s the Earth friendly way to unclutter your home.
