Abstract

Very little research has been done to determine storage and disposal trends of medicine by the general public. There is a need to investigate this as the effects of improper storage and disposal methods can be detrimental – medicine that has expired or medicine that has been improperly stored may result in the medicine becoming toxic or ineffective due to the chemical alterations. Similarly can improper disposal of medicine result in damage to the environment.
