Help keep Lorain County safe with prescription turn-in event

Staff Report

The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office drug task force and local police departments will hold a prescription drug turn-in day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 29.

Residents can dispose of expired or no-longer-needed medications, which helps keep them out of the water supply and away from unintended users.

Prescription labels should be removed. No personal information is ever asked and the medication is kept by law enforcement officers until disposed of.
