PROTECT OUR CLEAN WATER BY TAKING UNUSED MEDICATIONS TO THE FAUQUIER COLLECTION DAY APRIL 23 

In the past, we were told to flush unused medications down the toilet. We now know that this is wrong. Water treatment facilities and septic tanks were never designed to remove all the chemicals associated with medications. Many chemicals pass through the waste treatment process and into our rivers and ground water. Take your old medications and “sharps” to the Fauquier Hospital Medical Office Building on April 23: 9 AM to 12 noon. Call  540 316 3588 for questions. And tell your friends!
