Don’t flush medicine

If you flush unwanted or expired medications down the toilet, you may be surprised to find you’re inadvertently medicating the wildlife in our local waterways.  Wastewater treatment plants aren’t designed to remove synthetic medicines which can harm aquatic animals, especially at the developmental stage of their lives.  Both over the counter and prescriptions drugs are classified as hazardous waste and should always be taken to authorized drop off sites.  Drop offs are:  Healdsburg CVS Drug store at 455 Center Street and the Healdsburg Police Department at 328 Center Street.  Cloverdale at Cloverdale Pharmacy, 117 Broad Street, and Windsor at Health First 9070 Windsor Road and CVS Pharmacy at 9030 Brooks Road.
