The Glendora Police Department will host a prescription drug “Take-Back” day on Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. You can bring your expired, unused or unwanted medications in their original containers to the front counter of the Police Department at 150 South Glendora Avenue.
No liquids or sharps will be accepted. Prescription drugs in the wrong hands can have deadly consequences and drugs flushed down the toilet pollute waterways if they are not disposed of properly. The public has embraced the opportunity that these “Take-Back” Day events provide, in order to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs.
Local law enforcement agencies in thousands of American communities, including the City of Glendora, have partnered with the Drug Enforcement Agency in the previous six events that have taken place since September 2010.
A similar event in April netted approximately 742,497 pounds -- or 371 tons -- of prescription drugs, according to the DEA.
