⚠️Please: 🚫DO NOT FLUSH THEM DOWN THE TOILET, POUR DOWN THW DRAIN... they can end up polluting our waters, impacting aquatic species, and contaminating our food and water supplies. 🚯DO NOT THROW THEM IN THE TRASH...Throwing medicines in the garbage is not safe – especially for controlled substances like OxyContin, narcotics and other highly addictive and dangerous drugs – because the drugs can be found and used by others, even if they are mixed with undesirable materials like coffee grounds or kitty litter.
There’s an epidemic of accidental poisonings from medicines in our homes – and children are the most common victims. Also, pets and animals are not deterred by kitty litter or other substances when getting into the trash and can potentially ingest the unused medicines. Human medications are the leading cause of pet poisonings, most often from trash-related toxic exposures.
