Medicine Drop Locations
Sites around the Catawba River basin where you can take unused or expired medication for proper disposal. You should NEVER FLUSH your medication down the drain.
Pharmaceuticals are a major problem for our waterways because wastewater and drinking water treatment plants cannot treat for pharmaceuticals, which are durable molecules being found in waterways and fish.
This is by no means a complete map. Many pharmacies are beginning to take back medication. HOWEVER, make sure that before you drop of medication, it will NOT be flushed down the drain!
