Residents Invited to Safely Dispose of Expired or Unwanted Medications

Senator Jack M. Martins (R-Mineola), Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, and Nassau County Legislator Richard Nicolello are sponsoring a “Shed the Meds” program in New Hyde Park to help residents safely dispose of unused or expired medications.

 

The “Shed the Meds” program will be held on Saturday, August 9th from 9 am to 12 pm at New Hyde Park Memorial High School (Parking lot on Evergreen Avenue, across from Tully Park).

 

Participating in the programs is easy; residents will be able to drive up, drop off their old or unused medications, and drive away. All collected medication will be safely disposed of by officers from the Nassau County Police Department who will be supervising the programs.

 

Safe disposal helps protect the environment and eliminates the risk of these drugs getting into the hands of small children or those who might misuse them. Improper disposal of medications, such as pouring them down the drain or flushing them down the toilet, can potentially pollute local waterways.

 

Residents who need more information about the “Shed the Meds” program on August 9th can call Senator Martins’ office at 516-746-5924.
