Spring Clean Out
Spring is the perfect time to clean out your medicine cabinet and safely dispose of any expired or unused medications. Leaving these medications around the house can be dangerous, especially if children or pets are present. To dispose of medications correctly, follow these steps: first, check if your pharmacy or local police department has a medication disposal program. If not, mix the medications with undesirable substances like coffee grounds or kitty litter before disposing of them in the trash. Do not flush them down the toilet, as this can harm the environment. Cleaning out your medications properly can help keep your family and community safe.
