Rockland Legislature Votes to Pass the Pharmacy Take-Back Act

The Rockland County Legislature voted 15-0 to pass a new law which is meant to keep unused drugs out of waterways and to prevent drugs from ending up in the hands of young people, and those who want to use them for recreational and illegal purposes. The Pharmacy Take-Back Act will force manufactures and retailers to create and operate a product stewardship program, which will make it easier for customers to return unused drugs from their households. The program will also feature strict background checks for the individuals who handle the collections and will also make retailers display advertisements about the program. Initial plans must be submitted by April 1st; however extensions can be requested.
