The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office would like to announce its participation in the 2022 Spring Operation Medicine Drop campaign in partnership with Safe Kids Randolph County (safekidsnc.org) and area Police Departments, beginning March 20 - March 26, 2022, during National Poison Prevention Week.
What is Operation Medicine Drop? Operation Medicine Drop (OMD) is a FREE drug take-back program that gives people a safe and secure way to dispose of unwanted over-the counter and prescription medications.
The opioid epidemic is not only a National crisis but a North Carolina crisis as well. An average of 4 people per day are dying from overdose in NC with 79% of those deaths involving some type of opioid. Drugs not properly disposed of may end up getting into the wrong hands or end up in our water system.
We aim to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription and over the counter drugs. We encourage you to bring all expired/unused medicine or medications you no longer need, however, all are unable to accept liquid medication. Please spread the word and participate in this campaign. We look forward to seeing you!
Citizens may bring expired medication to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office located at 727 McDowell Rd., Asheboro, NC, 27205, to be disposed of on Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm; Archdale Police Department located at 305 Balfour Dr., Archdale, 24 hours a day / 7 days a week; Asheboro Police Department located at 205 E.
