Safely Discard Expired, Unused or Unwanted Medications at the
“Shed the Meds” Drug Take-Back Event
SATURDAY, MAY 11th – 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Wantagh High School – 3297 Beltagh Ave., Wantagh
Legislator Steve Rhoads is joining together with the Nassau County Police Department, Wantagh School District, Wantagh School PTAs, Wantagh High School Key Club, Miss Wantagh Court and fellow Legislators Tom McKevitt, John Ferretti and Rose Marie Walker to host a “Shed the Meds” Drug Take-Back event at Wantagh High School. 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.
