Getting rid of outdated or unused medication isn’t always easy, but a joint effort by Southampton Town and Riverhead Community Awareness Program is going to make it simple.

Councilwoman Julie Loftstad in cooperation with the Southampton Town Police, the Southampton Youth Bureau, and The Riverhead CAP will be hosting a “Medication Take Back Day” on Saturday, October 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Flanders Community Center.

Residents are encouraged to turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal. Unused medication can wind up in the wrong hands or be discarded improperly and potentially pollute our drinking water. Turning in your medication will ensure it is disposed of in a safe, environmentally friendly way.

Liquid medications or syringes cannot be accepted.
