About the event

  • Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue which can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse;
  • Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision;
  • The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends, and the home medicine cabinet;
  • Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.
  • Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment; Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs.
