HOW DRUGS ARE DISPOSED:

After all the drugs are collected they are transported to a facility to be incinerated. This is the best method of disposing of the drugs. Pouring down the drain or flushing unwanted, unused, and/or expired prescription drugs down the toilet keeps medicine(s) from entering streams and rivers which can affect our drinking water supplies.
