Residents can also drop off their unused medications at the Sheriff’s Office Substations, as well as local police departments.

The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services is partnering with Wegmans to hold a pharmaceutical waste collection this Saturday at the Chili-Paul Wegmans.

The event runs from 8 a.m through 1 p.m. and will allow residents to drop off their unused medications which will be destroyed by an incineration process which is overseen by law enforcement.

"With a significant rise in the abuse of prescription drugs throughout the country, these collections continue to serve as an outstanding resource allowing for the safe disposal of potentially harmful substances," said Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo. "These drugs are too dangerous to leave sitting unused or unwanted in our homes and these collections are a commonsense way we can get substances out of our neighborhoods and disposed of safely.”

Residents can also drop off their unused medications at the Sheriff’s Office Substations, as well as local police departments.

Waste from pharmacies, veterinary offices and pharmaceutical businesses are not accepted at these waste drop-offs.
