Join neighbors and Shed the Meds on Saturday, April 21st from 9:30am to 12:30pm at Shelter Rock Elementary School (27A Shelter Rock Road, Manhasset). The program is sponsored by Senator Elaine Phillips, Manhasset CASA and the Nassau County Police Department.
Residents can drive up and drop off their old or unused medications! Please note that needles cannot be accepted. All collected medication will be safely disposed of by officers from the Nassau County Police Department who will be supervising the program.
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.
