Yellow Jug Old Drugs Program now available at Keystone Pharmacy

Keystone Pharmacy Celebrates Earth Day, April 22nd, by becoming a “Yellow Jug  Old Drugs” participating pharmacy.

Celebrate the wonderful water resources of our state and region.  Our streams, rivers, inland lakes, and the Great Lakes are treasured resources.  They also supply us with our source for drinking water, whether through municipal water systems or ground waters.  Every time we get a drink of water, catch a fish or simply contemplate the beautiful blue of the lakes, we should be reminded to do all we can to keep our water clean.  One of the easiest and most important things we can do to keep the water clean is to keep unused/unwanted drugs from entering our water.

The Yellow Jug Old Dugs program accepts non-controlled drugs. Keystone Pharmacy has a complete list of accepted/not accepted items and can help customers with any questions they may have.

Studies by the Kaiser Family Foundation and opinions by a consortium of physicians, health insurers, naturalists and government agencies have shown the need for people of all ages to  engage in health-enhancing physical activity in parks and other natural environments.  Advocates from the White House to the National Wildlife Federation encourage  children and adults to combat the deleterious effects of "diseases of indoor living" such as: obesity, heart disease, vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis and stress among others by getting out to enjoy unstructured play and interaction with the natural world.

The residents of Cascade Township have supported the construction and maintenance of a wonderful twenty-mile-long pathway system. This year we added the purchase of the beautiful nearly eighty acre Cascade Burton Park and the two hundred acre Peace  Park.
