Residents urged to drop off unused prescriptions on Oct. 26 at 3 locations
Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff Randy Bower
The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office will once again participate in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Initiative on Saturday, Oct. 26, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
This is a collaborative effort with the U.S. Department of Justice – Drug Enforcement Administration, the Orleans County Health Department and the Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism & Substance Abuse (GCASA).
This is a great opportunity for the public to surrender unwanted and/or expired medications for safe and proper disposal. Events such as these have dramatically reduced the risk of prescription drug diversion and abuse, as well as increasing awareness of this critical public health issue.
The following are collection points:
• Orleans County Public Safety Building – 13925 State Route 31, Albion
• Holley Fire Department – 7 Thomas St., Holley
• Medina Fire Department – 600 Main St., Medina
Special thanks to the Holley and Medina fire departments for providing space within their facilities for this event.
