Prescription drug take back day scheduled for April 26

Apr 8, 2014 12:56 PM

Prescription drug take back day, a national effort encouraging people to get rid of unused prescription drugs at local police departments and other designated drop-off sites will be April 26.

Drop off locations in the area will be at the Red Bluff Community Center, the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office and the Corning Police Department on Saturday April 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The take back day is an opportunity for people to dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused medications. The drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and pose a risk to public health and safety.

Last year in just four hours Shasta County residents turned in over 600 pounds of unused, expired and unwanted medication.

The program is free to participants and all donors will be able to remain anonymous.
