Safe drug disposal April 30, no questions asked


Staff Report



Lorain County’s 14th prescription drug turn-in day will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 30 at many law enforcement offices.

It is a great opportunity for residents to dispose of outdated or no-longer-needed medications. The Lorain County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force says the program keeps medication out of the water supply and away from unintended users.
