Daily Herald report

The Lindenhurst Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration present the public with an opportunity to recycle dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26. Bring all pills for disposal to the CVS Pharmacy, 2020 E. Grand Ave. The service is free and anonymous. Liquids and needles will not be accepted. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Studies show a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines -- flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash -- pose potential safety and health hazards. Call (847) 356-8252.
