UNUSED MEDICATION DISPOSAL

 

Disposing of unused medication has been a problem for community water supplies. For years, Illinois residents sometimes just flushed down unused medication which ended up in water treatment plants or rivers and lakes. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has partnered with the Medication Education Disposal Solutions (MEDS) Action Committee to help facilitate disposal alternatives for discarded medications. The MEDS Action Committee has a website that will provide information on how to safely dispose of medication and locations for disposal. The site is www.epa.state.il.us/medication-disposal.
