Unwanted Medication Disposal; Saturday, August 7, 2010; 9am-1pm

"The Erie County department of Environment and Planning and other local agencies are encouraging people to bring in their expired, unused or unwanted prescription and over the counter medications to the Erie County Law Enforcement Training Agency from 9am-1pm Saturday for proper disposal.

The Training Agency is on the Erie Community College North Campus at 6205 Main St., Amherst.

Medication discarded incorrectly can cause environmental hazards, including endangering water supplies of local municipalities. And unwanted medication left in the house increases the chance of accidental poisoning and the potential for misuse, according to information from the county Department of Environment and Planning."
