Spring is in the air. And if you are getting rid of last year’s prescription drugs that you didn’t finish taking, this is for you.

Yes some will just say ‘Flush em down the toilet’ but, do we really need those drugs in the water system.

And we should all be concerned that if they are just left around that those potentially harmful drugs could end up in the wrong hands. Including an addict’s hands.

But they also could end up in an innocent child’s hands too. And nobody should want that to happen.

Unused or expired medications can be dropped off with no questions asked.

And at the same time you can have your personal documents shredded for free.
