GLRPPR Sector Resource: Safe Drug Disposal Portal

Title:
Safe Drug Disposal Portal

Abstract:
Most Americans are aware of the dangers posed by illegal drugs. But what about prescription drugs? And over-the-counter drugs? Not only do these types of medicine play a big role in today's drug abuse epidemic, but their disposal can also contribute to water contamination and can disrupt aquatic life.

Whether this is your first time considering the risks lurking in your medicine cabinet, or you're an expert seeking tips on organizing a safe drug take-back program for your community, there are resources here to help you.

Includes links to drug take back program case studies.
