2015 Victor Medication Drop Off
Victor will hold its 6th pharmaceutical drop off event, organized by the Partnership for Ontario County in collaboration with the Victor Sustainability Advisory Committee, the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office, Mead Square Pharmacy and the Victor Central School District.
The purpose of this event is to collect and properly dispose of unwanted and outdated prescription and over the counter medications. All you have to do is drive through the Victor Education Center parking lot where volunteers will collect the medications – no paperwork and with no questions asked.
Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are increasing at alarming rates, along with numbers of accidental poisonings and drug overdoses. Studies show that most abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Medicines thrown in the trash can be picked up by anyone to be passed around or sold on the street, and flushing drugs leads to contamination of environment and potentially of our drinking water supply. So, please bring your unwanted medications to this event for safe disposal and help protect the health of our community and the environment.
Last October’s event was a great success! We collected 256 pounds of medications from 99 vehicles and 2 full containers of unwanted sharps. The drugs were taken to the Covanta Niagara municipal solid waste facility by Ontario County Sheriff’s Deputies for destruction via incineration.
If you have any additional questions, contact Terry Whitt (Partnership for Ontario County) at 585-396-4554 or Derek Guest (Victor Sustainability Advisory Committee) at 585-924-9139.
