Safe Drug Drop Off Established At SCV Sheriff’s Station

threeeyedfishnew_copyUnless you’re hoping to create one of those three-eyed fishes made famous on “The Simpsons,” in the Santa Clara River,  health officials ask that you not flush those expired prescription drugs down the toilet when you do your spring cleaning.

To facilitate the safe disposal of expired drugs, including over-the-counter medications, syringes and other controlled substances, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station is participating in the Safe Drug Drop-Off program.

 

Three secure disposal containers are available at the front of the station on Magic Mountain Parkway for safe and anonymous drop off.

The common practice of storing unused or expired medications at home can lead to improper or illegal use, sales, or distribution if they fall into the wrong hands. The inadvertent ingestion of these medications by children can have deadly consequences.

Still others flush the medicines down the drain which can have an adverse impact on our environment. Waste water treatment plants are not able to test or treat for pharmaceuticals. They can end up in our rivers, streams, lakes, oceans, and groundwater system.

The Sheriff’s Department is encouraging individuals who wish to dispose of medication or any narcotics, to bring them to the three white narcotics mailboxes located at the front entrance of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, where they will be available indefinitely.

“The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is always looking for innovative new ways to enhance public safety and improve our quality of life,” said Captain Anthony La Berge of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “This program provides a safe way to dispose of unused or unwanted medications and keep them out of our community,” he added.
