Cotati Police Dept. hosting DEA drug takeback event

April 23, 2021

The Cotati Police Department is hosting a Drug Enforcement Administration prescription drug takeback this Saturday, and residents are asked to bring their unused and expired medications so they can be properly disposed.

No appointment is needed for the drive-thru being held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. behind Cotati City Hall at 216 East School St., police said.

Residents are asked to remove their medication from the bottle and place them in a bag prior to arriving at the event. The DEA accepts tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs; syringes and illegal drugs are not accepted.

“Proper disposal of prescription drugs makes your home a safer place and it also benefits our environment,” Cotati PD said. “Throwing medications away in the garbage may be dangerous and lead to tragic accidents, as they can end up in the mouths of children or household pets. Many people also toss expired or unused medications in the trash or flush them down the toilet or drain. Some components of these drugs end up in our lakes, streams, and water supplies.”
