Greetings!

 

Meryl Klein of Earth 911 has occasionally asked me to help when consumers ask
about drug disposal. This time I thought I'd see if there's anyone from New
York who would like to field this question - if so, please cc me so I know
it's been addressed.

 

And if you don't know about Earth 911, please visit their excellent web site:
www.earth911.org <http://www.earth911.org/>  

 

Thanks,

Laurie

	Hi,

	 

	My name is Fabiana Casella and I live in Port Washington, NY 11050. I
would like to know how I could dispose safely expired medication like
antibiotics, asthma medicine etc. I saw on the web site that there is a place
in CT, but it is almost 70 miles from where I live. Please, I do not want to
dispose all these medication I have at home in regular garbage because I
understand the hazards of it to the environment.

	 

	Thank you.

	 

	Fabiana Casella
