Wegmans will hold prescription drug drop-off events on Saturday

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Wegmans is partnering with local law enforcement agencies to hold prescription drug drop-off events at its stores on Saturday, Oct. 28.

In the Rochester area, the participating store locations are Brockport, Calkins Road, Chili-Paul, Holt Road, Irondequoit, Lyell Avenue, and Penfield. You can drop off drugs between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
