Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff’s Office

ALBION – Orleans County Sheriff Chris Bourke is pleased to announce that the Sheriff’s Office will again participate in National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Justice – Drug Enforcement Administration and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office.

This is a great opportunity for the public to surrender unwanted and/or expired medications and sharps for safe and proper disposal. Events such as these have dramatically reduced the risk of prescription drug diversion, abuse, as well as increasing awareness of this critical public health issue.

The authorized collection site for this event will be located at the Orleans County Public Safety Building, 13925 State Route 31. We will be collecting unused medications, sharps, pet medications, and e-cigarette / vape devices (The batteries must be removed).
