Turn in unused prescription medications
On Saturday, October 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. get rid of any expired or other prescription medications you don't need anymore - drop them off at any Lorain County police department. This "Drug Take Back Day" is a national initiative through the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Prescription turn-in days keep medications from getting in the hands of people who the medication isn't prescribed to. This initiative also helps keep medications out of the water supply.
Know before you go:
- Remove all prescription labels.
- No personal information is collected.
- All medications collected will be kept by law enforcement officers until it is disposed.
