Pharmacies across Nebraska are starting to collect unwanted, unused, or expired medications. A lot of the time, medicines are disposed of by being flushed down the toilet or poured down the drain. The pharmaceutical chemicals can enter the environment, contaminating surface and groundwater by several means. In addition to the environmental concerns of medication disposal, there are also the health concerns of accidental poisoning and potential overdose.
