Keep prescription drugs out of the water

Drugs and pharmaceutical products have saved and improved countless lives. But these drugs need to be disposed of carefully. If not, they pollute the environment or harm human health and wildlife. Please note, this is for prescription medicines only. Click here to learn more.

Anything flushed or disposed of down a sewer drain ends up at a water treatment plant. This process removes debris, suspended matter, and disinfects the end-product before being discharged to our surface waters.

Saturday, April 28, is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. This day is particularly important to water districts because it means that less medication will end up down the drain and at wastewater treatment plants. Please drop off your unused medication at the Fox Metro Water Reclamation District, one of the following locations, or search your zip code here.
