Safely dispose of unused prescription drugs

Submitted By Cmdr. Ben Horner, Union City PD

Union City Police and the City of Union City, in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Saturday, April 28, is hosting a drop-off location to safely dispose of subsequently accumulated unwanted and unused prescription drugs.

"This is the first year that the City of Union City and Union City Police have hosted a drop-off location for Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. We understand the need to develop a convenient way to rid homes of unwanted prescription drugs," said Brian Foley, Union City Police Chief.

"An event such as this can dramatically reduce the risk of prescription drug deviation and abuse, and increase the awareness of this public health issue," Chief Foley continued. For more information about National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, please contact the Union City Police Department at (510) 471-1365 or visit www.UnionCity.org.
