South San Francisco, CA April 13, 2021
In response to a question posted on our social media regarding disposing of unused medications, we are updating our information from our 2014 outreach HERE.
Linda C posed this question:
I received a message from the City of Lakeport on this and was wondering if police departments down here are doing it as well and if their are any particular stations- Thank you National Prescription Take Back Day on April 24, 2021 police stations are taking old or not using prescriptions back.
Please note our City has continued the medication take back program for many years and our update is advising new locations to drop off unused medications, per San Mateo County Health Department. For more info CLICK HERE.
