The event will provide residents with an easy, confidential and safe way properly dispose of unused or expired medications. Residents are encouraged to drop off expired and unused medications and sharps at the event site.
All collected medication will be safely disposed of by the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office to help keep these medications from polluting our environment and help eliminate the risk of these drugs getting into the hands of small children or those who might misuse them.
The event will also help raise awareness of the dangers of flushing medications down the toilet. Improperly disposed medications pose a problem to the community’s water supply and environment.
