New York State Senator Fred Akshar, Binghamton Mayor Richard David and the Southern Tier AIDS Program are hosting a “Shed the Meds” and Narcan training event June 17 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Binghamton Fire Department Training Center at 1 Belden Street.

Residents can get rid of unwanted prescription drugs but should not bring liquids.

The free Narcan training will be at 1 p.m.  Space is limited, so people should register at Akshar.NYSenate.Gov.

Last year’s Shed the Meds in the 52nd Senate District collected over 500 pounds of drugs with an estimated street value of $180,000.
