Responsiby getting rid of expired medications is not difficult. Doing it correctly takes just a bit of planning but considering the benefit, it is worth the effort.
Three reasons to properly dispose of medications:
-throw in the trash and there is a good chance the chemicals get into the ground water acquifers
-throw in the toilet and and the chemicals are in the sewer and try as they might, I'm not confident everything that should be screened out is removed
-reduce chance for someone to ingest a drug that has lost its effectiveness
The San Antonio Water System, San Antonio Police Department, and City of San Antonio Solid Waste Management Department sponsor a free collection event three times a year. The next collection is January 26, 2019, 8am-1pm, and the Bulk Waste Collection Center, 2755 Rigsby Avenue. See the website https://saws.org/meddropsa/ for more information.
