Hand Over Your Drugs, No Questions Asked

On Saturday, April 27, the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration will sponsor “National Pharmaceuticals Take Back Day,” in coordination with the City of Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, to provide an opportunity for the public to dispose of expired or unwanted medications and sharps.

Hosted in front of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station year round, community members can simply drive through the parking lot and drop off pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications with no questions asked. Containers will be located outside the station, which is located at 23740 Magic Mountain Parkway, for free and convenient disposal.

“This national event addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Unwanted or expired prescriptions drugs need to be disposed of properly. Take Back Day is a great opportunity for community members to anonymously dispose of potentially harmful items for free,” said Mayor Bob Kellar.

National Pharmaceuticals Take Back Day is a one-day event that not only reduces risks to public health and safety, but also helps bring national attention to the increasing problem of pharmaceutical abuse in the United States. According to the DEA, the last five Take-Back events have collected more than 2 million pounds (1,018 tons) of prescription medications with the help of state, local and law enforcement partners.
