Why is this environmental news? Because proper disposal of prescription drugs protects the water supply! Medicinal chemicals cannot be removed from your sewer or storm drains and eventually end up in the environment, including drinking water. Protect our water supply-please dispose of your unused/expired medications safely! See below:
Norwood participates in the National Take-Back Initiative National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day collections twice a year. This day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.
