National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Saturday, April 27, 2013

On April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the City of El Cerrito along with other cities across the nation will be participating in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. During the event, the El Cerrito Police Department will accept your medications for disposal at the vacant parking lot at 10940 San Pablo Avenue (between Manila Avenue and Madison Avenue) in El Cerrito. The Kensington Fire Protection District is also hosting a drop-off location at Fire Station 65 at 217 Arlington Avenue in Kensington.
