Why shouldn't I flush or pour my expired prescription or over-the-counter medicine, vitamins or other supplements down the drain?
Studies have shown that low levels of pharmaceuticals are present in our nation's waterbodies. One reason may be because many wastewater treatment plants were not designed to remove these chemicals and therefore some pharmaceuticals, vitamins or other supplements are not fully removed, and thus may adversely affect human health and the environment.
