ALBION – Today is National Drug Take Back Day and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office will be accepting unused and expired medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Safety Building, 13925 State Rt. 31, Albion.

“This is a great opportunity for the public to surrender unwanted and/or expired medications and sharps for safe and proper disposal,” said Sheriff Chris Bourke. “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.”

This will be drive-up event due to Covid-19 concerns. All medications and sharps will be collected from participants at their vehicles.
