The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly turned the tables on life as we knew it and expected it to be for us this year.

Given emergency declarations and orders of state and county government, events have been postponed for rescheduling at later dates or completely cancelled.

This edition of RecycE contains that information which is currently available or known to us.

We hope you

stay safe & stay well !

The need to properly lock up and properly dispose of medications is extremely important, regardless!

If you have medications that are expired or you no longer want, take them to any of the permanent medication drop-off sites in the meantime (or any time during available hours!). A link to that information (for printing/downloading) is in a following section.

Exclamation Point on golden orange

Here are some attention-getting Buncombe County statistics from 2018 posted on that website:

"OVER 10 MILLION PAINKILLERS WERE PRESCRIBED IN BUNCOMBE COUNTY IN 2018.

In 2018, there were 265 opioid overdose emergency department visits in Buncombe County.

79 Buncombe County residents died from unintentional opioid overdose deaths in 2018.

606 community Naloxone reversals were reported in Buncombe during 2018.

Today in North Carolina, you are more likely to die of an overdose than a car crash."

"Addiction is a disease and can happen to anyone.
Whether you or someone you know is impacted by opioid addiction, help and hope are closer than you think."
