National Prescription Drug Take Back results from April 30, 2016
The Drug Enforcement Agency, in conjunction with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States, conducts National Prescription Drug Take Back Days. The City of Fountain Valley participated in the National Prescription Take Back Day on April 30, 2016. 228 pounds of prescription medication was disposed of at the Fountain Valley Police Department.
The purpose of this take back day was to provide a venue for persons to anonymously dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs safely and, at the same time, remove potentially dangerous prescription medications, particularly controlled substances, from our nation’s medicine cabinets.
