Self-disposal pouches for medications gain popularity

More Door County residents are using self-disposal pouches to safely get rid of unused medications.  Bay Hometown Pharmacy in Sturgeon Bay offers the drug disposal pouches free of charge.  Co-owner Jake Blazkovec says this disposal option offers people an alternative to biannual drug take-back events, especially when confronted with leftover medications from a deceased relative's home.

 

 

 

People statewide appear to be getting smart about keeping prescription medications out of wastewater streams.  The annual Drug Take-Back Day on October 26th diverted just over thirty tons of unused or outdated medications from Wisconsin wastewater treatment facilities.  That was the second-highest collection in the United States.
