When doctors prescribe medication, they typically expect that you’ll use it all up. However, sometimes, we don’t. These leftover pills stay in the medicine cabinet until we decide to throw them away. Unfortunately, these provide temptation for people hooked on prescription drugs. Flushing them down the toilet or garbage disposal sends these toxic substances into the ocean and our drinking water. And trash cans won’t keep the addicts away. If you have any old medications you want to get rid of safely, bring them to the Basking Ridge medication drop-off 2018 event on Saturday, March 10th.
