Purpose

Bring your unwanted prescription drugs to a Shed The Meds program sponsored by Senator Owen H. Johnson on October 20, 2012, from 10:00 AM until Noon at the West Islip Public Library Parking Lot, 3 Higbie Lane in West Islip.  Drive up and drop off any expired or no longer used prescription medications.  They will be safely disposed of by the Suffolk County Police Department who will be on hand for the collection.

“We’ve all heard too many stories about prescription drugs being used improperly and even illegally,” Senator Johnson said.  “By collecting and properly disposing of household drugs, we can help to keep them out of the wrong hands.  Doing so also keeps harmful materials from being disposed of improperly and potentially damaging our water supply.”

DISPOSE OF EXPIRED OR NO LONGER USED PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS.

WHEN:     SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20
                   FROM 10:00 AM UNTIL NOON

WHERE:  WEST ISLIP PUBLIC LIBRARY PARKING LOT
                    3 HIGBIE LANE
                    WEST ISLIP, NY  11795

PLEASE NOTE:  Syringes, sharps or liquid medication will NOT be accepted.
