REMINDER-The Simi Valley Police Department’s 8th Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is this Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., in the front parking lot of the Simi Valley Police Station at 3901 Alamo Street.
SVPD in conjunction with the community has worked in a collaborative effort with the public and removed over 8,600 pounds of unwanted medications from residences to avoid falling into the hands of people who could possibly abuse them.
In an effort to continue to provide a safe and ecologically friendly way for residents to dispose of old and unwanted medications please call the Property Room at (805) 583-6964 to arrange for an appointment or use the Property Window telephone located in the lobby. Do not dispose of waste medication down drains or toilets or in the trash.
The Simi Valley Police Department allows the community to bring illegal drugs to the Police Station and turn them in with no questions asked.
How to dispose of unwanted medications:
• CHEMO DRUGS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS EVENT ONLY
• Empty the contents of pill bottles into a Ziploc bag (please recycle your pill bottles at home and remember to scratch out all personal identification information).
• Leave liquids, gels, or creams in their original containers and place them in a Ziploc bag.
• Sharps such as needles, syringes and any other items used for diabetic tests will not be accepted. Sharps disposal containers are available for free from Sierra Vista Family Medical Clinic at 1227 E. Los Angeles Avenue, Simi Valley, 805-582-4000
