OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining Police Department is partnering with Ossining Communities That Care and the Drug Enforcement Agency to host a prescription drug take-back day on Saturday, Oct. 26.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. any unwanted, unused, or expired prescription drugs can be dropped off in the lobby of the Birdall-Fagan Police Facility at 86-88 Spring Street in Ossining.
“This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue,” said CTC’s Heidi Hellmich in a press release. “Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.”
Ossining Communities That Care is a coalition of individuals and organizations working together to prevent underage drinking and reduce the use of alcohol and drugs in the community.
