Pharmacy-Based Drug Take-Back Program Launched in Lewis County

Two pharmacies in Lewis County will begin collecting leftover pharmaceuticals from residents free of charge. Designed and implemented by the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) and the New York State Product Stewardship Council (NYSPSC), this drug take-back pilot program offers county residents convenient locations to dispose of their leftover and expired medications.  Funded through a grant awarded to PSI and NYSPSC by the United States Department of Agriculture, the pilot program will use both pharmacy-based collection receptacles and pre-paid mail-back envelopes to facilitate the proper disposal of leftover pharmaceuticals.  This service is free of charge, no questions asked.

The participating pharmacies are:

Bonaparte Pharmacy, 8210 Main St., Harrisville, NY (315) 537-5032

The Falls Pharmacy, 6805 McAlpine St., Lyons Falls, NY (315)348-8121
