Medication Drop-Off Day on Saturday

Drug Enforcement Administration

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will organize a medication drop-off day on Saturday across Western New York. The event is planned to collect unwanted and unneeded medications from residential homes.

The event will start on April 30 from 9 a. m. to 1 p. m. The event will be held at 21 sites and will collect all types of medications, prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Last year, a similar event, named National Drug Take Back Day, was held in September which collected over two tons of unwanted and unneeded medications from residential homes.

The event is part of a national campaign and is supported by local police agencies, including Kids Escaping Drugs, UB and D'Youville Schools of Pharmacy, Erie County DEP, IHA, Covanta, Buffalo Bisons and West Herr Automotive Group.

The aim of collecting these medicines is to keep them out of the hands of teens looking to experiment with them. The program will also raise awareness about saving water. Most of the people flush these old medications and many other unwanted things which contaminate the water. Such practices also waste thousand of liters of water every day.
