Don't throw old medicines down the toilet or in the rubbish as they can harm our environment. Instead take out-of-date medicines back to your local pharmacy through the Return Unwanted Medicines program. This will protect the environment and your children.

I never thought it was safe to throw pills in the toilet. I think I did once out of curiosity, but it felt really wrong. I think people originally did that to get rid of it entirely...I don't know.

Yeah, it's always been common knowledge about getting rid of old medication through the pharmacies and chemists.

Yes you are correct, Cheri but Rubbish bin?

I alway threw old medicines to rubbish bin. I didn't know that it harm evironment to throw old medicines to rubbish bin. Thank you for your information. I'll find out.

I'm environment-friendly but not 100% prefect. I do what I can to protect the environment.:Oops:

German law is very strict about environment, that's why we learn alots about this & also at school, too.

Interesting, I'll do that next time I get rid of the old meds that's out of date and take those to the pharmacy instead of the rubbish bin. Thanks for the info! :D

I had to throw my prescription away, cause people know I have medicine in my cabinets and they would sneak and steal my prescription with my OWN name on it and use it for drugs. I have to throw away before someone steal them.. I tried to call all the RX stores and they don't take old or useable medicine.
