I suggest you...that the govenment should state a nationwide medication bottle recycling project. People recycle paper, plastic jug/bottles/bags, tires, metals. There are millions of medication bottles that land up in landfields because people just throw them away, when they are finished taking the medication. The container just sit in the ground and take years to decay. By starting a medication bottle recyling project these bottles can be reused. Medication cost also includes the container. This is passed on to the consumer. By recycling the bottle(container) it can be reused, thus bringing down the cost of the medication.
