MMSD Collecting Medications For Proper Disposal on June 9th

Too many folks flush pharmaceuticals down the drain, and these medications end up in the water we drink.

That's because water treatment systems cannot eliminate 100% of these drugs. It's a growing problem, and who wants traces of painkillers, veterinary meds, birth control hormones, anti-depressants or other prescription drugs in our eight glasses of water a day?

So the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District is collecting medications for proper disposal, as a public service, this Saturday, June 9th, at Miller Park, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Details here.
