Sheriff’s Office to participate in ‘Drug Take-Back Day’

CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) is participating in National Drug Take-Back Day, set to be held Saturday, April 30.

This initiative is led by the United State Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration. It’s the 11th consecutive year this has been in place.

According to authorities with the CCSO, the purpose of the ‘Take-back’ is two fold. It is to help keep drugs of abuse from being resold or taken illegally. Further, it is to cut down on groundwater contamination.

It was said that some of the drugs do not filter out when at landfills or sewage treatment facilities. The remnants can then end up in the area’s groundwater.
