> Leftover medicines lingering in our homes are both a public health threat and an environmental concern.  Improper disposal of medicines by flushing contributes to the serious problem of pharmaceutical pollution in the environment.  Public awareness has significantly improved in the last few years that leftover medicines should not be flushed or should not be thrown in the household trash.  Medicine take-back programs are the safest way to get rid of unwanted medications, protecting our families and our waterways.  However, the public is confused by conflicting messages on medicine disposal coming from the FDA, the DEA, the EPA.

> 
> Please join our effort to stop  the FDA’s ongoing recommendation to flush certain medicines down toilets or drains. See the FDA’s website at:  http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm101653.htm  that lists medicines that should be flushed, and also does not clearly recommend the use of medicine take-back programs.
