How you can get rid of unwanted prescription drugs and needles

The Amherst Police Department and the Erie County Department of Health are teaming up to help you get rid of unwanted drugs and needles the safe way.

A new, secure drop-off kiosk for both drugs and "sharps" (needles, lancets, syringes) is now available at the Amherst Police Department , located on 500 John James Audubon Parkway. 

The kiosk will be available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.  According to the Health Department, prescriptions and over the counter drugs, pills and other solids, like patches, as well as liquids, are accepted for environmentally safe disposal.
