Prescription Drug Take Back Day, Saturday, Oct. 28, Various Locations

Prescription Drug Take Back Day – Saturday, October 28th 2017, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., multiple locations around the county
Did you know that prescription drug abuse often starts with teens experimenting with pills they find in their family's medicine cabinet?  Do you know what's in yours?  Here's a chance to safely dispose of old and unneeded medicine and help prevent prescription drug abuse and accidental overdoses. Flushing medicine down the toilet or putting it in the trash bin can pollute our waterways and ground water.  Let's keep our water clean by disposing of old medicine properly and safely. San Diego Police and the DEA will collect the drugs, no questions asked.  The drugs will then be safely incinerated.
