Turn in unused prescription medications
Posted on: October 12, 2017
On Saturday, Oct. 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. get rid of any expired or other prescription medications you don’t need anymore. See a list of turn-in locations below.
The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office Drug Taskforce will spearhead this 17th annual prescription drug turn in-day. 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.
