Davisites turn in unwanted drugs

By From page A2 | May 01, 2014

A recent prescription drug-collection effort by the Davis Police Department yielded 126 pounds of unwanted, unused or expired prescription medication during a four-hour period, the department announced Wednesday.

“By having community members turn in this medication, we are hoping to avoid accidental overdoses, unlawful disposal and harm to the environment,” said Davis police, who teamed up with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration for the collection.

Those who did not have an opportunity to turn in their unwanted, unused or expired medication may bring it to the Davis police station at 2600 Fifth St. for disposal, or go to the DEA’s website — www.justice.gov/dea — and click on the “drug disposal” link for more information.
