Reminder: Drug Take-Back Is Saturday in Martinez

The Contra Costa Sheriff's Office is participating in the sixth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Saturday, April 26 at the Martinez station.

Take-Back Days allow the public to help prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. 

The collection site will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the service is free and anonymous -- no questions asked.

The Martinez CCSO drop-off is at 1980 Muir Road in Martinez.  

Medicines that languish in home cabinets create a public health and safety concern because they are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
