The Cotati Police Department is hosting a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) prescription drug takeback. Proper disposal of prescription drugs makes your home a safer place and it also benefits our environment.
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.
Please dispose of your medications in a responsible way.
Date: Saturday, April 24
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
216 East School St, (behind City Hall) Cotati, CA
This will be a drive-thru, socially distanced event (no appointment needed). Please remove your medications from their bottle and place them in a bag prior to the event.
The DEA will collect tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs.
Syringes and illegal drugs WILL NOT be accepted.
