Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard is asking residents to please participate in the 7th annual National Prescription Drug “Take Back” Day this Saturday, October 26th, from 10am to 2pm. The Sheriff’s Office will join forces with the National Drug Enforcement Administration <DEA Buffalo> and several other law enforcement partners for this one-day event which will provide residents with no cost anonymous collection of unwanted and expired medicines. Please go to & find a DEA collection site near you.

It's a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet! Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.

For anyone unable to participate in this event, Sheriff Howard would like to remind citizens that prescription drug drop boxes are set up at the below locations. These boxes are sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office and Erie County Health Department. You can dispose of old and unwanted medications safely, securely and anonymously.
