We live in Minnesota
I have several bottles of left over medications from various surgeries - like eight to ten years ago - and there are left over medications.
I tried to take them to the clinic - they told me to take them to the pharmacy - the pharmacy said No, we don't take that stuff - the supposed "proper method" is to mix the pills in with used cat litter - and THEN put it in the trash. It still will go to a land fill - and get dispersed into that soil eventually.
The recommendation to flush the meds down the toilet has been rescinded. That idea seemed to be in the "I can't believe how utterly stupid this is" category.
I've heard that Wisconsin will incinerate them.
What do you do with left over medications?
