Don’t flush medications; protect New York’s waterways
The Putnam County Communities That Care Coalition is partnering with the Putnam County Department of Health (DOH) and the Sheriff’s Department to hold a medication take-back day on Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Putnam Hospital Center’s Wagner Cancer Pavilion, 670 Stoneleigh Ave. in Carmel.
The program provides a safe place to dispose of old or unused medications to protect New York’s waterways and youth. Individuals may bring prescription, over-the-counter and pet medication, preferably in original packaging, if possible, with personal patient information removed. Syringes will not be accepted.
