Cuomo announces a new drop box program

Dear Editor:

Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced the placement of drop boxes at nine New York State Police Troop Headquarters that will give residents across the state a secure place to anonymously dispose of unused prescription medications and controlled substances. In Orange County, the drop box will be located at Troop F Headquarters, 55 Crystal Run Road in the Town of Wallkill.

“With the state cracking down harder than ever before on prescription drug abuse, these secure drop boxes will give New Yorkers a place to dispose of unneeded medications, helping keep harmful substances out of the hands of those who would abuse them,” Governor Cuomo said.

I am very pleased with the governor’s announcement. These drop boxes will serve to provide a secure place to dispose of medications that may be potentially dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands.  I am happy with the governor’s decision to place one of these nine drop boxes in Orange County.
