From the Shasta County Health & Human Services Agency:
More than 50% of abusers are known to obtain the medication they abuse from family and friends for free. Also, most medications are not removed though normal water-treatment processes when flushed down the toilet, so they end up in the environment and groundwater.
The Safe Medicine Disposal Program provides the Shasta County community the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unused and/or expired medications.
