Don’t Rush to Flush Unwanted Medication


A number of northern California jurisdictions are participating in Santa Clara County’s new Don’t Rush to Flush campaign. The campaign encourages residents to dispose of unwanted medications safely at designated collection sites, instead of throwing them in the trash or flushing them down the toilet. Their video below shows how disposing of medications safely keeps them from contaminating waterways and out of the hands of children. Stockton and San Joaquin County are in the planning stages to join the campaign in early 2018.
