The Town of North Hempstead is hosting a drug take-back program Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wheatley School (100 Bacon Rd., East Williston).

“We urge all residents to go through their home medicine cabinets and take advantage of this opportunity to safely dispose of their unwanted and expired prescription drugs at our drop off locations,” Town Supervisor Jon Kaiman said.

North Hempstead has been hosting pharmaceutical collections events since 2009 and has taken in more than 2 tons of unwanted prescription drugs.

For more information, call 311 within town boundaries or 516-869-6311 from outside the town.
