Pharmaceutical waste is a far reaching issue that affects more
than just hazardous waste programs. These unused drugs present
opportunities for environmental contamination, drug abuse and
accidental poisonings. Proper disposal through collection events
and Medication Drop Boxes are necessary to ensure the drugs are
completely destroyed by incineration. Taking the easy way out and
simply throwing any unused medications in the trash or flushing
down the drain can lead to significant environmental problems.
