Erie County Legislator John Mills reminds residents that the annual Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is on Saturday, April 27 and several sites across Erie County will accept medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

Sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration and supported by several local agencies, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day collects thousands of pounds of drugs and disposes of them properly. In 2012, a total of 488,395 pounds of medications were collected across the country.

 

“There are expired and unwanted prescription drugs in homes across our communities that pose a hazard. By dropping off these items at the Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, we can remove the risks associated with these drugs collecting in homes. Millions of Americans suffer from prescription drug abuse and they often find the drugs in the homes of friends or family members. If you have any prescriptions that need to be disposed of properly, please stop at one of the several sites that Erie County will be hosting,” said Legislator Mills.

 

Local collection sites include:

  • Orchard Park Police Department collecting at Mercy Ambulatory Center, 3669 Southwestern Blvd., Orchard Park, NY 14127
  • North Collins Police Department collecting at North Collins Police Department, 10543 Main St., North Collins, NY 14111
  • Erie County Sheriff's Office collecting at Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, 224 E. Main St., Springville, NY 14141
