I mentioned that I was going to recycle my ink and batteries today (and I did), but that I would be left with expired prescription drugs. Of course the pills expired because I generally do not take pills! They are migraine pills in case you are wondering - if I had been prescribed antibiotics for example, I would have taken my full course :)
I am so grateful that I did not become someone who "has" migraines and only had one bad, bad month.
So the Drug Enforcement Agency or DEA does have a prescription drug take back program - or a take back day. This year it is in October and you can enter your zip code into a box on the website HERE to find a center near to you.
Pretty cool and smart. Keep those medicines out of our water and food.
[I did take a look at a local pharmacy website and it referred me to federal and state agencies - so I guess this is the only game going]
