Left-Overs, but we're not talking turkey

So you didn't need all of your prescription drugs, or they've expired, or you've changed prescriptions and now you are stuck with left-over drugs. What to do? We used to flush them but now they say the chemicals get into the water if you do that. Same for tossing them in the trash.  Now we can get rid of them and do no harm.  The Iowa Pharmacy Association has a program for disposing of prescription drugs and OTC medications safely.  The official title:  Take Away Environmental Return System; Iowa's Medication Disposal Program.  Visit the web site for information as to what medicines are accepted and to find a participating pharmacy near you.
