How do I properly dispose of my unused, unwanted, or expired medication?
In order to prevent youth substance use, avoid accidental overdose, it is important that residents monitor and safeguard their prescription and over-the-counter medication. To protect our environment, medication should not be thrown in the garbage or flushed. For the convenience of our residents, the Riverhead Town Police Department (210 Howell Avenue Riverhead, NY) has a permanent Drop Box in which residents can safely dispose of their non-liquid medication. For confidentiality purposes, please remove or blacken identifying information prior to disposal.
