Take part in the community-wide pharmaceutical disposal day where residents can drop unused and expired medication into a lock box on a voluntary basis, no questions asked.  The medications will then be disposed of in an environmentally safe way.  

Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Huntington) 16th LD will partner with the South Huntington UFSD and the Suffolk County Police Department to host a community-wide pharmaceutical disposal day in our area.  Over-the-counter and prescription medications, including antibiotics and controlled substances, have been detected in drinking water supplies in a number of municipalities around the country and this is an important pro-active step to prevent Suffolk County from facing this problem. It will also reduce the potential for children and young adults to gain access to these medications.
