Don't Drug Your Drain

A program promoting the safe disposal of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs). Disposal of PPCPs is becoming a complex environmental issue. Research has shown that these compounds remain in water even after treatment, although the potential health effects to humans or aquatic organisms exposed to the low levels of these chemicals in water is still being studied. The safety and health of the environment is directly affected by the disposal method used, so it is important that we all be responsible when disposing of these products.
