National Prescription Take-Back Day set for April 24

You can dispose of your unwanted, used or expired prescription medications during the drive-through National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 24 at Mission Viejo City Hall.  

With social distancing and COVID-19 precautions in place, the event is from 10 am to 2 pm at 200 Civic Center.   

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. The need for education is certainly there. In fact, 60-70 percent of teens report their home medicine cabinet as their source for drugs.  Don’t let your medicine cabinet be the source of drugs for anyone!  

You can drop-off your medications anonymously with no questions asked. (No sharps, marijuana or pressure canisters.)  

For more information, call 714-647-4133.
