MTAC Drug Take Back Event

Collaboration to Reduce Prescription Drug Misuse

Pounds-1Massapequa residents came out in full force to participate in Massapequa Takes Action Coalition's bi-annual Drug Take Back Day which had to be rescheduled from October 27th to November 3rd due a Nor'easter! 

 Residents and parents helped to prevent prescription drug misuse by turning in 275 pounds of unused and expired medication. In addition, 94.4 pounds of needles were disposed.

We thank our partners and MTAC volunteers for their help.  If you were unable to attend, you can always drop off your unused or expired meds (no liquids or ointments) any time/day at Nassau County Police Department 7th Precinct, 3636 Merrick Road, Seaford, NY 11783 or ANY Nassau County Police Precinct.
