The SF PUC is hosting a street fair called “Big Blue Bucket Eco Fair” on Saturday the 26th from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM.  It looks like a cool event, and I plan on being there and reporting whats what.  Some pre-highlights are rain barrel installation and a used medication drop off.  Medication disposal is one of those small things that in aggregate settings, like say a City, has a massive impact.  Dumping that last pill or three down the drain has long been an accepted way of getting rid of unused pharmaceuticals, but it has a tremendous impact on local waterways when these chemicals make it to the bay: waste water treatment plans are NOT designed to removed medication from water, it DOES get into fish and harm the waterways.  Just another good example of San Francisco doing its part.
