Legislation sponsored by Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman (R-Somerset) to prohibit health care facilities from discharging prescription medications into public sewer or septic systems was signed into law by Gov. Chris Christie.
“The improper disposal of unused medications is a direct threat to human health and the environment,” Bateman said. “It poses long-term health consequences and the potential for rampant abuse of drugs, especially among teenagers. This law establishes, and makes health care workers accountable to, the safest disposal of unused drugs."
