On Saturday, April 22nd, 2023, 10am to 2pm, Seneca County Police Agencies will be partnering with the DEA and the Seneca County Substance Abuse Coalition, to conduct a DRUG TAKE BACK DAY in Seneca County. Officers will be at 3 different locations 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.
Seneca Falls Police Department will be at Kinney: 2085 Rt. 5&20 Seneca Falls.
Waterloo Police Department will be at Walgreens: 1929 Rt. 5&20 Waterloo.
Seneca County Sheriff’s Office will be at Kinney: 7115 North Main St. Ovid.
Police Officers and members from the Seneca County Substance Abuse Coalition will also be available to answer questions and provide helpful information about substance abuse if so desired. Gun Safety Locks will be available at all locations. There will also be free Narcan training at the Waterloo and Seneca Falls sites.
Sheriff Luce, Seneca Falls Police Chief Snyder and Waterloo Police Chief Chechak all commented on the danger of these drugs falling into the wrong hands if not disposed of. Many of these drugs can also be hazardous to the environment if not properly destroyed.
The sites cannot accept liquids, needles or other sharps—only pills or patches please!
