Sheriff Howard drops pills into a new 24/7 pillbox that will be available throughout the county within 2 weeks. Instead of citizens waiting just twice a year to drop off their unused/unwanted prescriptions, they will be able to go to Erie County Sheriff's Office substations throughout the county and drop them off anytime- no questions asked. Remember: This Saturday is the National Prescription Drug Take Back program- check the DEA website (dea.gov) for a location near you.

SHERIFF’S OFFICE TEAMS UP WITH DEA REGARDING THIS SATURDAY’S NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK PROGRAM/ANNOUNCES ITS OWN 24/7 DRUG DROP BOXES AT VARIOUS TOWN HALLS AND COLLEGE CAMPUSES

Grand Island, NY- On Wednesday, April 24, 2013 @ 2:00 P.M. @ Grand Island Town Hall @ 2255 Baseline Road, Grand Island, the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and representatives from the Drug Enforcement Agency will hold a joint news conference regarding this Saturday’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Residents will be able to drop off their unused/old medications at twelve locations throughout Erie County.

At the same press conference, Sheriff Tim Howard will/introduce/  announce that his office has begun a 24/7 pill box drop off in which stationary boxes will be strategically placed outside participating town halls and local colleges to make it more accessible for people to drop off their unused/unwanted prescription medications.  The boxes will be located near the Sheriff’s Office substations inside the town halls and near the public safety campuses of the colleges and will be periodically emptied by Erie County Sheriff’s Office deputies.  The contents of the boxes will then be turned over to the Erie County Health Department to be destroyed through a stericycle process.
The colleges and towns participating in this campaign (see below) will have their pill drop off boxes activated within a month; Springville and Grand Island’s will be operational immediately.
