Ottawa County Drug Take-Back Day is 10-2 on Saturday

Ottawa County residents can dispose of prescription drugs at multiple area locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Collection sites will be at Genoa Police Department, Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, the Portage Fire District Station in Oak Harbor, and Lakeside Fire Station No. 2 in Danbury Township.

Medications accepted include prescription and over-the-counter drugs, samples, narcotics, vitamins, and inhalers.

Medications should be kept in their original containers, with names removed.

The local sites are among more than 4,700 nationwide participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day to prevent pill abuse and theft.

Last September, Americans turned in over 242,000 pounds—121 tons—of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites operated by more than 3,000 of the DEA’s state and local law enforcement partners.
