There is a proper way to dispose of prescription drugs, but many people don’t know how. Flushing them down the toilet might seem efficient and harmless, but it can hurt the local water supply.
Angela Hogan, Administrator with the Moultrie County Health Department, talks about their upcoming Prescription Take Back Day.
Even if you can’t make it to the Prescription Take Back Day, Hogan explains how you can dispose of your outdated or unused drugs.
Hogan says the next Take Back event is coming up.
Hogan appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show live from the Moultrie Country Senior Citizens Center.
