Rockland schedules drug take back day

NEW CITY – Rockland County will participate in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 28.

“This is an easy way to get rid of medications you no longer need so that they don’t fall into the wrong hands,” said County Executive Edwin Day. “Disposing of medications you no longer need by handing them over to the proper authorities also protects the environment by keeping prescription drugs out of our water supply.”

In Rockland, residents may bring their medications to the following locations where police and volunteer community agencies will be available to take the substances and dispose of them in an environmentally safe way:

  • New City, CVS Pharmacy, 280 South Main Street
  • Bardonia: CVS Pharmacy, 300 Route 304
  • Garnerville: CVS Pharmacy, 12 West Ramapo Road
  • Spring Valley: Walgreens, 208 East Route 59
  • Nyack: Walgreens, 16 Route 59
