PHARMACEUTICAL COLLECTION AND DESTRUCTION
On Thursday, January 15, March 19 and May 21 the Brighton Police Department will be at the Rochester VA Outpatient Clinic (ROPC) to collect pharmaceutical waste for proper destruction. An officer will be in the lobby from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on these days to collect the following:
1) Controlled substances
2) Non-controlled, non-hazardous substances
