MANAGING UNUSED-UNNEEDED PHARMECUTICALS AND PROTECTING YOUR DRINKING WATER
Improper disposal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals is having an adverse impact on the environment, and on human health in your community!
Studies have demonstrated these adverse effects and raise concerns about the serious consequences that will occur if action is not taken.
Since 1980, unused-unneeded pharmecuticals have been increasingly recognized as chemical pollutants of the environment by the EPA!
The highest levels detected are from nonprescription drugs, antibiotics and prescriptions, which have adverse consequences for you and your family members, including endocrine disruption, such as (physical, mental, and sexual developments) and mostly antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. Did you know that the EPA has found ampicillin resistant bacteria in every U.S. river tested in 1999?
If unused-unneeded pharmecuticals are not eliminated during sewage treatment they eventually reach your drinking water. In fact, most sewage and water treatment facilities in your cities and towns do not treat pharmecutical contaminants, so they are left untreated and enter surface, ground, and drinking water.
Fill-A-Box and Stat-Medicament-Disposal incorporates compartmentalization, automation, and bar-code scanning technology for their safe and effective removal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals, this in cooperation with it’s online database enables your community to quantify and identify what you have accomplished in your community with Fill-A-Box and Stat-Medicament-Disposal.
A paradigm shift in thinking as to the removal of unused-unneeded pharmecuticals from the waste stream and landfills, and most importantly your drinking water systems.
