The Rockville Centre Police Department is partnering with the US Drug Enforcement Admin. to sponsor a prescription Drug take back day. It is set for Saturday, September 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Rockville Centre Police headquarters at 34 Maple Avenue, Rockville Centre NY.
They will be collecting potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription medication for safe disposal. This will be free and anonymous, no questions asked.
Many medication left in cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse and many people do not know how to properly dispose of unused medicines. Flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away are both potential safety and health hazards.
