The federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will conduct a nationwide prescription drug collection on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Collections will be held at many locations around New York and are the best way to dispose of unused and unwanted prescription drugs.
In addition to the DEA collection on April 26, other collections are scheduled in many New York counties and many are available more often than the DEA collection. Visit DEC’s Household Drug Collection Schedule webpage for more information.
