Groups Collect 235 Pounds of Expired Meds

More than 90 residents dropped off 235 pounds of unused or expired medications during a take-back day held Nov. 8 at the Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel.

“Keeping these medications out of the water supply as well as out of the hands of potential abusers makes this day so important,” said Kristin McConnell, co-chair of Putnam Communities That Care Coalition, a sponsor of the event. Medications also can be dropped in a secure box at Philipstown Town Hall weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
