Get Rid of Unused, Unwanted, and Expired Medications Saturday

Those prescription and nonprescription medications that are cluttering up your cabinet will have a place to go on Saturday, when police departments in both towns on the South Fork host drug take-back days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

At East Hampton Town Hall, a safe-disposal collection is for veterinary medicine as well. Needles or other sharp items, liquid medication, and waste from professional services will not be accepted.

The same items will be accepted at the Southampton Town police substation at Bridgehampton Commons, near the main entrance off Montauk Highway. If you find yourself farther west that day, which is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, you can make a drop-off at the Hampton Bays Community Center on Ponquogue Avenue or the Flanders Community Center on Flanders Road.
