ORGANI-SPRING WEEK 3, TASK 4: MEDICINE CABINET
When you're sick, all you want to have to think about is getting better. That is why it
is important to make sure you do not have expired medication or
prescription drugs in your home.
Check the expiration dates of all items in your medicine cabinet and set aside any that are
no longer usable. DO NOT flush
expired medications or prescriptions. Check with
your local law enforcement or pharmacy to find out if there is a drug
take-back collection program. If
not, click here for the federal guidelines on proper disposal of
medications when a drug take-back program is not available in your community.
NOTE: SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 2012 IS NATIONAL TAKE-BACK DAY AT APPROXIMATELY 3,000 STATE & LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES TO ENCOURAGE THE SAFE & PROPER DISPOSAL OF MEDICATIONS. FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO FIND A COLLECTION LOCATION NEAR YOU, CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE DEA'S OFFICE OF DIVERSION CONTROL.
