Saturday’s event was part of a nationwide drug collection effort, and everything gathered today at Henry Mayo will be destroyed on Monday in Long Beach, said a representative from the Drug Enforcement Agency.

“All the drugs are going to the incinerator on Monday,” said the DEA representative. “People are smart enough to not throw away or flush old drugs down the toilet. This event allows them to get rid of these drugs in a safe way. [Henry Mayo] is doing a really good deed by hosting the event.”
