The event will take place on Saturday October 26th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Blessed Trinity Parish at 1340 Plymouth Avenue in Fall River.

The following items will not be disposed of in the drop box: creams, ointments, liquids, thermometers, syringes, IV bags, bio-waste, aerosols, inhalers, or epi-pens.
