Recycle Butte
Recycling is more than extending the life of our landfill.  It is about making the best use of the resources we have available and preserving those resources for future generations.  It is about conserving water, energy, land and materials.  It is about creating a sustainable community that values what we have and what future generations deserve to have.  When you bury something in the landfill, it's like burying the energy and water it took to create that product.

5/5/16 - Walgreens offers free prescription drug take back service at their Chico East Avenue location.

In the first ongoing national effort of its kind by a retailer, Walgreens has installed  safe medication disposal kiosks in more than 500 drugstores in 39 states and Washington, D.C., including their East Avenue location in Chico .  The program will make the disposal of medications, including opioids and other controlled substances, easier and more convenient while helping to reduce the misuse of medications and the rise in overdose deaths.

The medication disposal kiosks allow individuals to safely and conveniently dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired prescriptions, including controlled substances, and over-the-counter medications, at no cost. The kiosks at Walgreens pharmacies will be available during regular pharmacy hours (24 hours a day at most of these locations) and will offer one of the best ways to ensure medications are not accidentally used or intentionally misused by someone else.
