what happens if prescription drugs are not disposed of properly?



  1. 0 Votes

    If prescription drugs are not properly disposed of, they can break down into their base elements which are then leeched into the surrounding environment, contibuting to high toxicity levels in the earth, air, or water.

    For instance, some prescription drugs specifically say “do not flush”. This means that disposing of these drugs via water is irresponsible, since the drugs are water soluable and can contaminate public water sources if not properly disposed of.

    Please see the cited government handout for more information.

    Animals or children can get access to them which can cause my problems. There may be signs of allergic reaction, overdoses, other nasty side effects, and possibly death. Even adults who don’t need the prescription can use the product to get high or sell to someone for profit.
