Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff Randy Bower

ALBION – This past Saturday the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office once again participated in the National Prescription Take-Back Event that was sponsored by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

The collection event yielded over 773 pounds of unused medication and sharps. All of the collected medications were transported by the Sheriff’s Office to a designated incineration facility for destruction.

The prescription take-back event has been very successful in Orleans County and to date the Sheriff’s Office has collected over 5,600 pounds of unused medications and sharps. The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office will continue to support future collection events with the purpose of safely disposing unused medications and to reduce the potential for criminal diversion.

In addition, The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Medina and Holley Fire Departments for supporting this initiative by allowing the sheriff’s office to use their facilities as collection locations. We would further like to thank the Drug Free Communities Coalition for providing volunteers at each collection site and the Orleans County Public Health Department for assisting with advertising the event.
