Permanent prescription boxes now available

GENESEE COUNTY — Genesee County residents now have the availability to drop off unused, unneeded and/or expired medications in a number of locations.

“We are pleased to partner with several local police departments to place these drop boxes in safe and convenient locations within the community. Residents can keep their medicine cabinets free of unneeded medication and keep it out of the hands of individuals who may misuse them,” says Danis Russell, CEO of Genesee Health System.

Locations can be found at:

Five of the boxes were acquired through a previous Byrne JAG grant that was awarded to the Office of Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton and Genesee Health System.
