On Saturday, October 23rd , 2021, The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, partnering with the DEA and the Seneca County United Way , will conduct a DRUG TAKE BACK DAY in South Seneca County. A deputy will be stationed at the Law Enforcement Center 6150 Route 96, Romulus, N.Y. and at Kinney Drug Store, North Main Street, Ovid N.Y from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. Deputies will be there to collect potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked and no paperwork to complete.
Deputies and members from the Seneca County Substance Abuse Coalition will also be available to answer questions if so desired.
In addition to the TAKE BACK DAY citizens may drop off these drugs at any time in one of the Sheriff’s two Unwanted/Unused Prescription Drug Drop-Off Return Kiosks. These kiosks are located in the main lobby of the Seneca County Law Enforcement Center in Romulus and the first floor, (near D.M.V.), of the Seneca County Office Building, 1 Dipronio Drive, Waterloo, N.Y.
Sheriff Luce stated: “Take Back Day is a safe, convenient and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs. It is important to get these potentially dangerous drugs out of your home before they find a new home. “
Syringes and needles are not eligible for Take Back or Drop Off.
