Pilot Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program Open Enrollment

Enrollment in DEC's pilot pharmaceutical take-back program is now open to all New York State health care entities such as:

  • retail chain and independent pharmacies,
  • hospitals and medical clinics with on-site pharmacies, and
  • pharmacies servicing long-term care and assisted living facilities holding a Class 3A license in New York State.

The program covers the costs of consumer drug collection boxes and disposal for two years, and gives pharmacies a safe, convenient and effective way to keep drugs out of our waters and out of the wrong hands.
