Why should I use secure medicine return?
- Limit drug abuse. The home medicine cabinet is one of the most common places people go when looking 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.
- Residential Needles or Sharps
- Business Pharmaceutical Wastes
- Mercury Thermometers
- Washington Poison Center
