Yates County Drug Take Back Day set for April 30

The Yates County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are offering county residents an opportunity to dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

Yates County Sheriff Ron Spike announced the next National Rx Drug Take Back Day will take place on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the County Courthouse, according to The Chronicle Express.

Yates County Sheriff’s officers will accept and dispose of over-the-counter, prescription drugs and pet prescriptions at the April 30 drive-through event. The event is anonymous, no-questions-asked and you do not need to exit your vehicle.

Additionally, permanent drug drop-boxes are available from the Sheriff’s Office at the Public Safety Building in Penn Yan 24/7 as well as Monday – Friday at the Starkey Town Hall in Dundee.
