Price Chopper/Market 32 wants to make sure you know about their year-round safe medication disposal program.

All New York Price Chopper/Market 32 pharmacy locations (47 in all)  have year round Drug Disposal Kiosks where you can get rid of your expired, unused, or unwanted medications. No questions will be asked, so stop on by during pharmacy hours and drop off your meds

They opened up the kiosks in 2023 and Price Chopper/Market 32 has collected over 2,900 pounds of medication. That's a lot of drugs that won't end up in the wrong hands or polluting our environment!

Price Chopper/Market 32 President Blaine Bringhurst stressed the importance of safe medication disposal. He pointed out that while medication can heal us, it can also be harmful if not used right or if it ends up in the wrong hands.

These kiosks are secure with a latch to keep everything safe inside of it. You can drop off unused or expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, as well as medication for your pets. Just make sure they're returned in their original packaging or a sealed bag.
