(SYOSSET, N.Y.) – Nearly 90 people availed themselves of the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted medications during a Tuesday, March 26 “Shed the Meds” event at the Syosset Public Library sponsored by Nassau County Legislature Deputy Minority Leader Arnold W. Drucker, (D - Plainview) and the Nassau County Police Department’s Second Precinct.

During the event, residents disposed of more than five full bags of unwanted and/or expired prescription medications and patches, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, drug samples and predications at the library under the supervision of Second Precinct POP officers Chris Lovelace, Francesco Vescio, John Hadrigan and Andrew Oswald.

“By keeping prescription drugs out of the hands of people who should not have them, shed-the-meds events are an important part of our overall strategy for protecting the public from drug abuse and misuse,” Deputy Minority Leader Drucker said. “I am glad that so many people availed themselves of this convenient opportunity to clean their medicine cabinets, and I thank the Second Precinct, Syosset Public Library Head of Programming Alisa Fogel, and her entire team for making this such a success.”
