Community Pharmaceutical Drug Disposal Improvement

Drug disposal helps saves lives – and the environment too.

Safest Drug is proud to support community-wide drug disposal efforts. Keeping unwanted or expired prescription and over-the-counter medication out of home environments can reduce accidental harm. Research has even identified potential benefits for cleaner drinking water supplies and aquatic bodies of water, with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency noting water treatment plants being generally not equipped to routinely remove medicines from water supplies.
