San Juan Capistrano Police Services Department is again joining the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on April 26 in an effort to eliminate and reduce unwanted and unused medications from homes in the City.
Residents can dispose of their expired, unused, or unwanted drugs anonymously with “No questions asked.”
The event will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs for safe disposal.
Please be sure to remove any and all personal information from the packaging.
Residents can drop off their medications from 10 a.m.
to 2 p.m. at City Hall, 32400 Paseo Adelanto. This event is essential since unwanted medications should never be dumped down the drain or flushed down the toilet. They can enter the sewer system and harm the environment. Medical sharps such as syringes and lancets are NOT accepted.
For assistance with disposing of sharps please contact: OC Pharmacy, 31654 Rancho Viejo Rd., Ste. N, San Juan Capistrano, (940) 429-5326.
