Expired medicines, outdated computer equipment, or goldfish we are tired of caring for—from time to time, we all have things we no longer want or need. But how we get rid of stuff can make an impact on the health of the environment. IISG has developed a series of toolkits and initiatives to help communities, schools or individuals wisely deal with unwanted medicines, e-waste, trash burning or unwanted aquarium plants and animals. By safely disposing, recycling or donating many unwanted items, people can help protect the Great Lakes ecosystem and our drinking water quality.

This resource provides everything a community or a school needs to know to start an unwanted medicine collection program, which prevents these drugs from being flushed into local waters.
