The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office will be setting up a Drug Take Back Day collection site on Saturday, Oct. 24.

The 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event is being held in conjunction with National Drug Take Back Day, a project of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications.

The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office has a secure drop box in its lobby area that is available for citizen’s to safely dispose of unused or unwanted prescription medications.

This drop box is accessible 24 hours per day
