Medication take-back Saturday at police department

By From page A3 | January 26, 2013

FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Police Department and the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs task force will host a prescription medication take-back Saturday in the police department lobby.

The police department is asking residents bring all unused or expired medication to be properly disposed of. Police and ATOD want to ensure these medications are disposed in a safe manner so as to protect Solano County water and the Suisun Marsh. Disposing medications may also help prevent prescription drug abuse.

The police department will accept all unused medications, expired and recalled medication, any labeled or unlabeled medications, any liquid, solid or cream medications and any prescription or over-the-counter medications.

They will not accept needles, EpiPen injectors, syringes or any sharps.

Those who bring in medications will receive a gift card while supplies last. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday at 1000 Webster St.
