No Drugs Down the Drain
Disposing of unused, unwanted, and expired medications
As our partners at the Sanitation Districts of LA County will tell you, once it was common practice to flush medications (also known as pharmaceuticals) down the toilet. Your doctor or pharmacist may have even directed you to do this. We know now that these substances are bad for our environment - the ground, water, and air around us.
