Seymour Drug Drop Box
Pharmaceutical waste constitutes a significant environmental risk, especially to our drinking water. Studies conducted throughout the country have uncovered many of these drugs in our drinking water, and the negative effects of these substances on the general population are only now beginning to be studied and understood.
Pharmaceutical drugs, when abused or taken incorrectly, pose a substantial health risk. Of all of the illegal drugs found in the Fox Cities, more deaths are attributed to the pharmaceutical drug category than all of the other drug types combined.
