The Glendora Police Department will participate in the DEA’s annual National Drug Take Back 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.
The Glendora Police station is included as a collection site. Anyone can bring in any prescription drugs that they want destroyed, with the exception of liquids and needles, according to Community Services Officer Julie Linger.
Needles can be dropped of at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Station in San Dimas.
This will be the seventh national take-back day, and will be held at thousands of sites all over the country at the same time. A similar event in April netted approximately 742,497 pounds-- or 371 tons-- of prescription drugs, according to the DEA.
