The Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) urges the public not to flush unused or expired medications. Flushing or pouring medications down the drain threatens our rivers, groundwater, fish, frogs and other aquatic life.
The NRWA encourages everyone to safely dispose of unused or expired pharmaceuticals at permanent medication drop boxes.
