The Amherst Police Department, in partnership with the Erie County Department of Health (“ECDOH”) has added a secure drop-off kiosk for both drugs and ‘sharps’ (needles, lancets, syringes), at the Police Department headquarters at 500 John James Audubon Parkway. This will be the 37th drug drop-off kiosk managed by ECDOH.

The kiosk will be available every day, 24 hours a day making it convenient for the public to safely dispose of unwanted medications and sharps. Both prescription and over the counter drugs, pills and other solids, like patches, as well as liquids, are accepted for environmentally safe disposal.
