Why should I use secure medicine return?

  • Limit drug abuse. The home medicine cabinet is one of the most common places people look for drugs to get high.
  • Prevent accidental poisoning. Many young children get poisoned by taking medicine not intended for them.
  • Protect the environment. When you flush medicine down the toilet or throw it in the trash, it pollutes our water and soil.
