Greg Tochtrop says prescription drug dropoff safe to health, environment

Unused prescription drug dropoff opportunities at several Greater Cleveland locations on Saturday

The Plain Dealer: The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration asked people to dispose of unneeded and expired prescription drugs at designated locations nationwide on Saturday. The collected drugs will be incinerated in a way that does not pose public health or environmental threats. “This method has been proven to be safe and effective,” said Greg Tochtrop, assistant professor of chemistry and pharmacology.
