Old and expired medications are flushed down the drain or tossed in the garbage and find their way into our water supply. Pharmacies around Long Island are installing recycling bins called "The Big Red Box". Bring in your old meds to participating pharmacies and recycle them to protect our water and make sure they don't get into someone else's hands for misuse and abuse. AMH
