The DEA's "Take Back Day" is coming this Saturday in Missoula. Spring cleaning is a seasonal ritual that happens at my house every year. This year you should take some time and consider cleaning out your unused or outdated medications. When I am cleaning out my house this is something that I rarely think about, but is something that I need to be more aware of.

Disposing of Unused Medication Is Very Important When Kids Are Involved

If you have children in your house you should consider disposing of any unused prescription drugs properly. You should make every effort to make sure that they don't fall into the wrong hands. Whatever you do, do not flush them down the toilet or dispose of them in the sink. They can get into our water supply and affect not just the water we drink, but the animals too.
