Wow, I think everybody, peripherally, is aware of these problems but can't do much about most of them. One tiny step, but please don't flush unused or outdated pharmaceuticals down the john!! Most towns have recycle drives where you can turn these in to be disposed of properly.

My question is what do you do with old coffee makers; electric skillets and such?

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted. I realized the danger of medicine, but I wasn't aware of the others.
