The Pharmaceutical Collection Event held on Oct. 26 by the WayneNET Consortium, which includes police departments, state police and sheriff’s Office, collected 826 pounds of expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs and medication at eight sites around the county from 393 participants.
Earlier this year, 588 pounds were collected on April 27 for a total of 1,414 pounds this year between the two events.
Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts would like thank Rochester DEA Agent Tim Kernan, Macedon Police Chief John Colella and Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Bob Hetzke (WayneNET co-commanders), the police departments and state police for their work and organization with this collection event.
