Please Note: While you are recycling the containers,  that in many communities you may recycle expired drugs (both prescription and over the counter), or medicines that you are finished using but some still remains…. DO NOT pour drugs down the drain or flush them down the toilet… ask at your local doctor’s office,  hospital or police department IF they have a safe disposal method for drugs. You don’t want that stuff in the landfill or water system either!  Take them to official collection sites on National Take-Back Initiative Day, April 27. Check the SMARxTDisposal website for other approved disposal ideas.   THANKS.  — the editor
