WHAT: Prescription Drug Take-Back Event

WHEN: Saturday, June 6, 2015 3:00 PM-5:00 PM

WHY: For many years flushing was identified as the correct way to safely dispose of unused and expired pharmaceutical drugs, but recently pharmaceutical drugs have been identified as an emerging contaminant in our drinking and surface waters.
