SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26th - 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Wisdom Lane Middle School – 120 Center Ln., Levittown

 

Legislator John R. Ferretti is joining together with Legislator Tom McKevitt, the Levittown Community Action Coalition and the Nassau County Police Department to host a “Shed the Meds” Drug Take-Back event at Wisdom Lane Middle School in Levittown. All residents are invited to help combat abuse and misuse of prescription medications by safely disposing of unwanted, unused and expired medications.


The Drug Take-Back program provides a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of prescription drugs, while also educating the community about the potential for abuse of medications.  Additionally, the event helps the environment by discouraging people from using the typical disposal method, flushing unused pills or dumping them in the solid waste stream. This event is open to residents of all communities.


We hope you will join us to fight Prescription Drug Abuse and Misuse.  Let’s work together to combat this issue. The more educated we become, the better we can protect our children.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISPOSING OF MEDICATIONS:

  • Keep all medications in the original container
  • Block out name on container for anonymity
  • Do not cross out medication information
  • Illegal drugs may also be dropped off anonymously
  • Thermometers, IV bags and chemo drugs will be accepted
  • Liquid medications, syringes and sharps will not be accepted
