LE ROY — The Le Roy Police Department today said that, due to unforeseen circumstances, it will not participate in the upcoming DEA National Drug Take Back Day which is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 24. The department said it hopes to participate in future Take Back days.
“As a reminder, the Le Roy Police Department will still have available the drug dropoff boxes located inside the Le Roy Village Hall, which is available 24 hours a day, for both medications and needles,” police said. “Due to COVID, the Village Hall is locked, so please use the phone outside of the Village Hall to contact dispatch to summon the on-duty patrol to assist with entry into the building.”
Detective John Condidorio said those who want to use the drop boxes can call dispatchers at 345-6350.
“We’ll meet them at the Village Hall and we’ll unlock the door to let them go in and let them in to drop off the drugs,” he said.
Those who want to dispose of excess medications on Oct. 24 may go to the Le Roy Village Hall or to the nearest dropoff point, at the rear vestibule of the City of Batavia Police Department, where there is one drop box for unwanted medications and one for needles.
