[ARCHIVED] Medication Drop Off Sites in Ontario County

Boy looking at meds

Have you recently cleaned out your medicine cabinet or has a loved one passed away? Are you wondering what to do with all those unwanted medications? It is important to get them out of your home to prevent them from getting into the wrong hands.

The Partnership for Ontario County, Drug-Free Communities will be holding medication drop offs on Saturdays throughout the spring and summer. Gather up your unused or outdated medications, bring them to a drop off site and hand them to the volunteer through your car window; no questions asked.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 are as follows:

Saturday, April 26, 9-1, Canandaigua Wegmans

Saturday, June 14, 9-12, Clifton Springs Hospital

Saturday, September 27, 9-12, Tops Market in Geneva

Saturday, October 4, 9-12, Victor Central School

If these dates 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.

Items accepted include prescription and over-the-counter medications, ointments, and inhalers. Sharps and needles are not accepted.

These services are open to the public, only; no pharmacies or businesses, please.
