Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Event - Sept. 26

The Erie County Legislature Majority Caucus announces that a Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 at various sites throughout the county. Residents are welcome to dispose of unwanted or expired prescription or over-the-counter medications, syringes, inhalers, liquids, ointments, patches, etc. However, products that contain mercury or radioactive materials will not be accepted.

Recent news about the detection of prescription drugs in drinking water has caused concern about the impact on human health. Also, storing expired and unwanted medications in your home increases the risk of accidental poinsioning.
