Are unused and expired drugs cluttering your cabinets? To help keep children, young adults and pets safer, bring your unwanted pills and liquid medicine to one of the many police departments that accept them or to Westchester’s own Household Material Recovery Facility (H-MRF).
Westchester residents can also make an appointment to bring drugs in their original container or a sealed plastic bag to the county Household Material Recovery Facility, 15 Woods Road in Valhalla. Medications are only accepted on designated days. When booking an appointment, you will select your zip code and then be able to view the calendar of available days, including designated med take-back days. You can also call the Recycling HelpLine at (914) 813-5425 for more information or to make an appointment.
