  • protects our environment, including our water supply

Also remember to :

  • store medications in a cool, dry, secure location
  • keep medications in original containers
  • use the local drop box to dispose of medications not being used
  • medications should only be used by the person they are prescribed to
  • keep medications away from children and your pets
