IT'S STORMY TIME
Melissa Atwood, Outreach Coordinator, Noman M. Cole, Jr., Pollution Control Plant, talks with host Scott Coco on EnviroPod episode 12 about safely disposing of unused, expired and unwanted medications. We’ve been taught for generations to dispose of unwanted medication by flushing it down the toilet or sink. Things have changed. Don’t allow drugs to fall into the wrong hands or contaminate water supplies. There are safe, easy and environmentally friendly ways to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications. Take your expired, unwanted and unused medicine to a dropbox location. Can’t find a dropbox? Search by zip code.

Clean water is our most important resource. To preserve water quality for future generations, we need to understand where water comes from, how we use it, and where it goes when it leaves our homes and businesses.
