Kingston: Prescription drug takeback on Saturday

Kingston is taking your unwanted or unneeded prescription drugs this weekend. Sergeant Sue Munford says there are a few different reasons you might want to get rid of them.

“Get rid of the prescriptions so people that shouldn’t be using them don’t have access to them, and secondly, to dispose of them properly. In the past, people have flushed the medications down the toilet, which isn’t good for the environment.  I believe it was the DEP that earmarked this program so we can safely dispose of these prescription meds,” Munford said.

She says there will be no questions asked, no matter what you throw out. It starts tomorrow at Kingston’s CVS pharmacy at the intersection of 53 and 3A.
