Prescription medication disposal planned

By From page A3 | October 24, 2013

The Davis Police Department, in cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, will take back unused and unwanted prescription medication on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Medications should be brought to the police station at 2600 Fifth St. in Davis.

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose and abuse, a news release said. In addition, pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.

Only liquid medication and prescription pills will be accepted — no syringes. For more information on how to properly dispose of prescription medication, visit http://water.epa.gov/scitech/swguidance/ppcp/upload/ppcpflyer.pdf.
