RYE, N.Y.-- A new prescription medication collection box has been installed at Rye Police headquarters.
The purpose of the box is to provide the community with a safe, secure location for the disposal of unwanted prescription medication in order to reduce access to addictive medications resulting in accidental or intentional misuse by children or adults in the home.
The collection box was obtained at no cost through the Westchester County Office of Drug Abuse Prevention and STOP-DWI.
Citizens may anonymously place their unused medication/drugs into the disposal vault. Prescription bottles should be secured by their caps.
Some items are not accepted including: sharps; bio-hazard items such as syringes or liquids; infectious or bloody material; inhalers; and aerosol cans.
