The Family Violence Prevention Council is hosting free senior safety events over the next few weeks.

May 23, residents can get rid of unwanted prescription medications and personal documents from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Northern Broome Senior Center in Whitney Point, May 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Broome West Senior Center in Endwell anf June 21 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Senior Picnic at SUNY Broome Community College.

The Council says the events will keep items from getting into the wrong hands.

Officials say each person is limited to one bag or box of papers for shredding like bank statements and medical records.  Items that are not accepted are metal ringed binders, papers with paper clips, folders with metal on top edges, cardboard, plastic items, rubber bands, colored folders and brochures.

For the medication drop off: needles cannot be accepted.
