Safe, Contactless Drive-Thru Responsibly Disposes Hundreds of Pounds of Unwanted Medications

Plainview, N.Y. (October 12, 2021)— The Plainview Water District (PWD) is hosting its fourth annual Pharmaceutical Take Back Day on Saturday, October 23 between 10am and 1pm at 10 Manetto Hill Road, where residents are encouraged to bring any unwanted or expired medications to be disposed of properly. As a part of the PWD’s Preserve Plainview initiative, this annual drive-thru event ensures the proper disposal of pharmaceuticals and prevents them from making their way into the community’s sole-source of drinking water.

“We encourage all members of the Plainview-Old Bethpage community to take advantage of this event to dispose of their expired or unused medications in the safest and most convenient way possible,” said PWD Chairman Marc Laykind. “Our collective responsibility as a community is to protect our sole-source of drinking water. POB residents continue to impress us with their participation each year and we look forward to making this year the most successful yet.”

Normally, if someone flushes medications down the toilet or throws them in the garbage, there is a likelihood that the medications’ contents will ultimately make their way into the community waterways and water supply. If there is an elevated presence of toxins from pharmaceuticals in the groundwater, the District will have no choice but to heavily invest in expensive treatment systems so the impurities can be removed before they reach customers’ homes.

“We could not be prouder of the community’s residents and how receptive they’ve been to this program we launched several years ago,” said PWD Commissioner Amanda Field. “With nearly 300 pounds of unwanted medications being collected last year, the District is hoping for another great turnout to help continue preserving Plainview’s water.”

This year, Pharmaceutical Take Back Day, which is held in partnership with the Nassau County Police Department, will once again include all social distancing and safety protocols. All residents with unused or expired medications are encouraged to go to the District’s headquarters at 10 Manetto Hill Road on October 23 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

“Protecting our environment from potentially harmful substances is the responsibility of each and every resident of our community,” said PWD Commissioner Andrew Bader. “Pharmaceutical Take Back Day is a wonderful opportunity for community members to do their part in keeping our aquifer safe.”
