Seneca County hosts drug take-back event with multiple agencies

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

Seneca County Police Agencies, in collaboration with the DEA and the Seneca County United Way, are hosting a Drug Take-Back Day today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This initiative invites residents to dispose of their expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs safely at three designated locations. The drop-off service is anonymous, free of charge, and requires no paperwork.

Residents can bring their medications to the following sites: Seneca Falls Police Department at Kinney, 2085 Rt. 5&20 Seneca Falls; Waterloo Police Department at Walgreens, 1929 Rt. 5&20 Waterloo; and Seneca County Sheriff’s Office at Kinney, 7115 North Main St. Ovid. Alongside drug collection, officials are also distributing Gun Safety Locks at all venues. Officers and United Way representatives will be present to address concerns and provide information on substance abuse prevention.

Sheriff Luce, Seneca Falls Police Chief Snyder, and Waterloo Police Chief Chechak emphasized the importance of the initiative, warning of the risks associated with unused drugs being misused or improperly discarded. Improper disposal can not only lead to accidental ingestions but also poses environmental hazards.
