The Amherst Seniors and Law Enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) Council and the Hampshire County Sheriff's Department host a drug take back event at least once a year to collect any unused prescription and over the counter drugs.  The collected drugs are incinerated and kept out of the hands of youth and out of the water systems.  Stay tuned for updates on the next take back event, but in the meantime, you can always drop off your unused drugs at the Amherst Police Department.
