Description

Is your medicine cabinet filled with expired drugs or medications you no longer use? How should you dispose of them? Most drugs can be thrown in the household trash, but consumers should take certain precautions before tossing them out, according to the Food and Drug Administra­tion (FDA). A few drugs should be flushed down the toi­let. And a growing number of community-based “take-back” programs offer another safe disposal alternative. Learn more about the proper disposal of medications.
