Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick, R-Tonawanda, reminds residents that Erie County has established nine easily accessible sites for the National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day. Over-the-counter and prescriptions drugs will be collected, no questions asked.

 

“National Prescription Drug Drop Off day is a terrific event that benefits our community and environment. By properly disposing of unwanted medications, we are taking the steps to keep them out of our water system and the hands of youths,” Legislator Hardwick. “Too often medications are easily accessible to teens or flushed down the toilet, both of which have dangerous consequences, that is why I am encouraging anyone with outdated or unwanted prescriptions to bring them to this controlled event.”

 

Medications, prescriptions and over-the-counter pills and liquids from residential homes will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 30, 2011 at the following locations:

  • ECMC, 462 Grider Street, Buffalo
  • Hamburg Fairgrounds, 5820 S Park Ave, Hamburg
  • Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, 224 East Main Street, Springville
  • Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital, 1540 Maple Road, Amherst
  • Kenmore Mercy Hospital, 2950 Elmwood Avenue, Kenmore
  • Mercy Ambulatory Care Center, 3669 Southwestern Boulevard, Orchard Park
  • St. Joseph’s Hospital, 2605 Harlem Road, Cheektowaga
  • D’Youville College, 320 Porter Avenue, Buffalo
  • West Seneca Town Ice Rink, 1250 Union Road, West Seneca
