Do you have unused or expired prescription medications that are you unsure what to do with?

Monroe County’s Department of Environmental Services is partnering with Wegmans and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office to hold a pharmaceutical waste collection on Saturday, June 28 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wegmans on Titus Avenue.

“Monroe County is proud of its collaborative partnership with Wegmans for these pharmaceutical waste drop-offs that are free-of-charge for county residents,” said Brooks.  “These collections continue to serve as an outstanding resource, as they allow for the safe and environmentally-friendly disposal of potentially harmful substances.”

We’re told there will be two additional, free pharmaceutical waste collections this year. The first is on Saturday, August 9 at the Mt. Read Boulevard Wegmans and the second event will be held on Saturday, September 20 at the Calkins Road Wegmans.
