Residents and parents can help prevent prescription drug misuse by turning in unused or expired medication for safe disposal at Massapequa Takes Action Coalition’s (MTAC) Fall Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, October 29th from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Massapequa High School East Driveway - District Office Parking Lot.
MTAC is working together with our nation’s annual drug take back program along with its Sector Partners, the Massapequa Elks Lodge #2162, Massapequa Public Schools and Nassau County Police Department to promote healthy families in the Massapequas. MTAC aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating residents about the potential for abuse of medications.
Instructions for drug take back: keep all medications in original containers; block out name for anonymity - do not cross out medication information. Please note: syringes & sharps WILL NOT be accepted. Unable to attend? Residents can drop off unused or expired meds (no liquids or ointments) any time/day at any Nassau County Police Department Precinct.
