Cleaning out your medicine cabinet and disposing of unused or outdated prescriptions and over-the-counter medications is a good idea.
Don't flush medications and other substances down the toilet or throw them in the trash. It is estimated that 4,600 tons of pharmaceuticals and personal care products enter our water supply systems each year. Flushing medications down toilets kills the bacteria needed in septic systems. Medications travel though sewage treatment plants, unfiltered, making their way into our drinking water. Drugs placed in the trash enter landfills and can trickle into the ground water.
All Doc's Pharmacy locations have prescription drug take back and disposal programs. Pharmacies, in cooperation with the EPA, collect medications that will be incinerated properly instead of released into the environment.
Doc's Pharmacy is committed to the cause. In support of the Pontiac Township High School Student "P2D2" (Prescription Drug Disposal Program) and the Will County Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program, Rx Drug Take Back containers are available at all Doc's Pharmacy locations.
