The Drug Enforcement Agency and the
Fremont Police Department are hosting a prescription drug “take-back” event
It will give people an opportunity to rid their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. A Newark Police spokesperson said a goal of the annual event is to prevent substance abuse, accidental poisonings and environmental degradation. Medication flushed down the toilet disrupts ecosystems.
The event will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday October 26.
Bring medications for disposal to:
Kaiser Permanente Fremont Medical Center, located at 39400 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont, California.
The service is free and anonymous.
