Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick reminds residents that the Sheriff’s Office maintains a Drug & Syringe Drop Box at Grand Island Town Hall, located at 2255 Baseline Road, Grand Island. The box is located in the front entrance and is accessible Monday – Friday during business hours.

 

“There are dozens of these Drug & Syringe Drop Box located throughout the county and they are having an impact thanks to residents taking the time to use them. Since 2013, the Sheriff’s Office has collected and properly disposed of 14.5 tons of medications and 4.5 tons of syringes. These are materials that were kept out of the wrong hands and out of our waterways,” said Legislator Hardwick. “Please use the box located at Grand Island Town Hall or visit the county’s Health Department website for a complete list of locations.”
