National Drug Takeback Day

Do you have unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs within your household that need to be properly disposed? These should NEVER be discarded into garbage, flushed, or washed down a sink. The chances of it damaging wildlife, ground water, or our drinking supply is too great. Instead, drop off these drugs at a designated disposal site. There are several throughout the city. However, for this specific event our nearest drop-off site (ONLY accepts pills and patches, no sharps) is:

SJPD Substation (next to the Costco on Great Oaks Pkwy)
6087 Great Oaks Pkwy
Saturday October 27, 2018
10AM – 2PM

If you cannot make it to this event, checkout the Santa Clara County Household Hazardous Waste program. It has links for sites throughout the county for drop-off of drugs and sharps for proper disposal.
