Thumbs up: Ditching your drugs
Indiana wildlife already absorbs untold amounts of trace chemicals that leach into the environment as people flush the pharmaceutical buffet that sustains the American way of life. While there's no stopping the Prozac and heart medications that take the urine trail to the wastewater treatment plant, efforts are underway to collect old, un-used prescriptionsover-the-counter meds, supplements, and sharps. Marsh and MainStreet Market Pharmacies will accept these items for proper disposal this Friday, March 16, though Monday, March 19. Items must be fully identifiable and in their original containers with personal information blacked out. Needles should be sealed in safe container, such as a laundry detergent bottle.
