Do things fall out of your medicine cabinet when you open the door? Perhaps it is time to discard your old and outdated medications.
The Partnership for Ontario County, Drug-Free Communities will be holding medication drop offs on two Saturdays this fall. Gather up your unused or outdated medications, bring them to a drop off site and hand them to the volunteer through your car window; no questions asked. Dates, times, and locations for 2014 are as follows:
Saturday, September 27, 9-12

If these dates and locations are not convenient for you, meds can be dropped off any time at the NY State Police, Troop E Headquarters at 1569 Rochester Rd. (Rt. 332) in Canandaigua. Simply place your medications in a plastic bag and drop them in the box provided; no fuss, no muss.
