Hey guys! You know once in a while I have to share something a little more serious here, and that’s what’s going on today. Let’s talk about the LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back Program and National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, falling on Saturday, April 27th this year (2019).

Dispose of your unused and expired medications properly to preserve the environment by utilizing the LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back Program receptacles. CLICK to learn more! #ConsumerDrugTakeBack #LifeInCheck #CollectiveBias

As you know, we are blessed to live in the mountains of New Hampshire. Our area is very rural and living in a town with no stoplight does have it’s advantages, like an abundance of wildlife and natural areas. Preserving nature is always on our mind, and that includes proper disposal of unused or expired medications.

With the LifeInCheck Consumer Drug Take-Back receptacles, you don’t need to wait until National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. You can dispose of your unused or expired prescriptions, OTC drugs, and even pet medication safely and discretely at your convenience, all year long.

Improper Disposal Of Unused or Expired Medication

Living in a rural area, if we flush or dump medications down the drain, they literally end up in our back yard. From there they could end up in the lakes and streams. Not to mention our drinking water and vegetable garden! If we toss them in the garbage, they’ll end up in a land fill. In any case, improper disposal can cause damage to the environment or end up in your drinking water. According to the Associated Press, 46 million Americans are exposed to trace amounts of medications in their drinking water. UGH. Gross. No thanks! 🤢

When disposed of improperly, they may even fall into the wrong hands and end up being abused by others. According to DrugAbuse.gov, 18 million people in the U.S. over the age of 12 have misused medications at least once in the past year. And according to SAMSHSA.gov, 83% of people who misuse prescription pain relievers, including opioids, get them from a friend or relative.

To help reduce these issues and bring awareness to the opioid crisis, LifeInCheck created the Consumer Drug Take-Back program. This gives consumers a safe option to discard their outdated or unused medications throughout the USA.
