Tomorrow is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, but you can also learn how to dispose of medications at home. PSR Philadelphia has partnered with the Philadelphia Water Department to release a video on the proper disposal of unwanted, unused or expired medications at home.
The video, Trash It! shows viewers how to protect their identifying information on labels from prescription medications, place medicines - liquid or pills - into a sealable container, mix it with an undesirable substance, such as kitty litter or used coffee grounds, and toss it in household trash.
The video and an accompanying flyer, "Trash It! Most Unwanted Medicines Belong in the Trash" Most Unwanted Medicines Belong in the Trash" can be viewed via the PSR Philadelphia website. A one-minute version of the video is also available online on the PSR Philadelphia YouTube channel.
