The National Prescription Drug Drop-Off program will be held this Saturday, April 28th in Genesee County from 10a.m. until 2p.m.

People can drop-off their unwanted or expired prescriptions, as-well as hyperemic needles to be disposed of properly.

There will be three drop-off locations, The Batavia Police Department, LeRoy Police Department or the Pembroke Town Highway barn on Routes 5 and 77.

Batavia Police Sergeant Patrick Corona said it’s important to get rid of unwanted prescriptions properly.  

“It’s an important program for not only getting drugs that could potentially be abused off the streets and disposed of properly, but also it’s a plus for our environment instead of these medications being flushed into the waste water system or thrown out into a landfill they’re being disposed of properly,” said Corona.

Corona said people can drop the drugs-off no questions asked.

After the drop-off program is done for the say the drugs will be weighed to measure the amount of drugs that were brought in and then they will be taken to the Buffalo DEA to be destroyed.

The county will hold a drop off every 6 months.

Its really one of the nice event in which people can drop-off their drugs and prescriptions that are not in use rather than keeping it with them.It will definitely keep our environment clean.
