Legislator Drucker Partnered with Nassau County PD’s Second Precinct to Host Successful ‘Shed the Meds’ Event at Syosset Library


(SYOSSET, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) partnered with the Nassau County Police Department’s Second Precinct to host a successful “Shed-The-Meds” event at the Syosset Public Library on Tuesday, Sept. 26. Throughout the evening, residents filled multiple large bags with unwanted and expired prescription medication as they dropped medication off for proper disposal.
“Shed the Meds events give our residents an important and convenient opportunity to safely and securely dispose of their unwanted medication. This keeps pharmaceuticals out of our fragile aquatic ecosystems and prevents prescription drugs from falling into the wrong hands,” Legislator Drucker said. “It was a pleasure to once again work with the Syosset Library and the Second Precinct to make this important event a tremendous success for our community.”
