Three dozen sites throughout Western New York hosted "medication drop off day" Saturday.

It's the largest single-day drop off in the region. The Drug Enforcement Agency is leading the effort as part of a national campaign.

The goal of the drop off is to keep medications out of the hands of teens looking to experiment and to keep our water safe.

One drop-off location was at the Brighton Town Hall. After medication is dropped off, it's then sent to a plant to be burned.
