Niagara County is adding more permanent sites for residents to drop-off their unused pharmaceuticals.

Prescription drugs that are dropped off will be safely destroyed and converted into clean energy at no cost to Niagara County at an energy-from-waste facility.

Lawmakers hope the new addition of drop-off boxes will help prevent prescription drugs from contaminating water supplies and from landing in the wrong hands.

New drop-off sites:

  • North Tonawanda Police Department, 216 Payne Ave.
  • Middleport Police Department, 12 Main St.
  • Town of Niagara Police Department, 7105 Lockport Rd.

Existing drop-off sites:

  • Lewiston Police Department, 4059 Creek Rd.
  • Niagara Falls Police Department, 1295 Main St.
  • Niagara County Sheriff’s Office, 5526 Niagara St.
