|Don't Flush or Dump!|
- Call your local solid waste management office and speak with the hazardous materials department. They will advise you on your area's options for safe disposal. Some even know of local programs for donations.
- If you have pills, tablets or capsules (not liquids), these can often be used well after their expiration, according to many sources. Contact free clinics, pharmacies and charities that ship medications to underdeveloped countries.
- One final thought occurred to me and I made a call to my local physician--a humanitarian fellow whom I have often known to try to help folks out. He said that anytime someone has unused medications that are still sealed, he accepts them for free distribution to patients that lack healthcare insurance or sufficient funds to purchase these medicines.
