Legislator Howard J. Kopel, along with the Nassau County and Long Beach Police Departments, has joined the US Drug Enforcement Agency’s nationwide “Take Back Initiative” to help keep unused medications off the street and out of the hands of our children. If you have any unused or expired medications in your home, please stop by either of the Rx Drop locations listed below on October 29th between 10:00am and 2:00pm to safely and anonymously dispose of old prescription or over-the-counter medications.
Protect our environment: Flushing medications down the drain can contaminate our waterways and drinking water. Safe disposal will keep pharmaceuticals out of our waterways. Your participation in this program can help keep our environment clean and our children safe.
