Free Prescription Drug Take Back Day scheduled for Saturday, September 27 Suisun City Police Department Parking Lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m

Prescription Take-Back - Sept 27, 2014 Suisun City residents are encouraged to bring any expired or unused prescription medications to the Police Station between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday September 27 where they will be accepted free of charge for proper disposal.

The Suisun City Police Department is working with the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to hold this event in conjunction with National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

The DEA and local police partners sponsor these events to help residents remove medications from their homes that have outlived their medical purposes or are expired. Medications that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse nationally are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses. Many abusers get their supply of drugs from the medicine cabinets of relatives.

The Prescription Drug Take-Back Day also addresses the environmental and health risks of disposing of pharmaceuticals. Expired prescription medicines cannot be flushed into the sewer system or buried in a landfill without risking significant damage to native ecosystems and water supplies. Because these compounds cannot be removed from sewage by treatment, any present in treated wastewater is released into local waterways.

By sponsoring this event in Suisun City, the Police Department is offering a higher level of service and convenience to city residents. The Police Department has partnered with Suisun City Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) Task Force, and the Suisun City Police Cadets to host this event.
