The opioid drug crisis - now a "public health emergency" by order of the president - is testament to how hard this work is.

From 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. on Oct 28, the DEA will give the public its 14th opportunity in seven years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially unsafe expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

Created in 2010, the DEA's National Take Back Day promotes a safe, convenient and responsible means for individuals to dispose of prescription drugs. The president's national health emergency declaration opens certain federal funds to drug treatment groups, among other things. The collection centers will only accept pills or patches.

Removing old, unused medications from homes is one way residents can help fight the opioid epidemic in Onondaga County, according to local officials.

Pulaski Police Department is in charge of the booth at Food City, while Dublin Police Department hosts the one at CVS and, this year, Pulaski County Sheriff's Office is hosting the booth at Walmart.

Last April, Americans turned in more than 900,000 pounds of prescription drugs.
