Drug Take-Back day presents Genesee County residents with an opportunity to properly and responsibly dispose of unwanted prescription drugs.
After this Saturday’s event, the LeRoy Police Department delivered 186 pounds of excess prescription drugs and 31 pounds of needles to the Federal DEA for incineration.
The Drug Take-Back program keeps these medications and needles out of the hands of our children, our landfills and our water system.
Drug Take-Back day is over but there is no excuse to hold on to those unwanted prescription drugs.
Citizens both in and around the Village of LeRoy can bring their excess medications to the Department at any time.
For those outside Village limits or for the disabled, the Department will make arrangements to have an officer drive to your residence and retrieve the medications.
Needles are only accepted on the two specific Take-Back Days each year. No announcement has been made yet on the next event.
