Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D - Huntington, 16th LD) will partner with the Commack Public Library to host a community - wide pharmaceutical disposal day Tuesday, March 25 in our area. Over - the - counter and prescription medications, including antibiotics and controlled substances, have been detected in drinking water supplies in multiple municipalities around the country. This is an important pro - active step to prevent Suffolk County from facing this problem. It will also reduce the potential for children and young adults to gain access to these medications. Take part in the community - wide pharmaceutical disposal day, in which residents can drop unused and expired medication into a lock box on a voluntary basis, no questions asked. The medications will be disposed of in an environmentally safe way. "SHED THE MEDS" PHARMACEUTICAL DISPOSAL DAY TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 COMMACK PUBLIC LIBRARY 18 HAUPPAUGE ROAD, COMMACK COLLECTION TIMES: 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
