Prescription Drug Take Back Event this Saturday, April 27 10am-2pm at Police/Fire Dept.

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, the City of Mountain View Fire Department is offering residents the opportunity to dispose of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. This one day service is a collaborative nationwide effort, in cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and is free and anonymous, no questions will be asked.

Please consolidate medications (i.e. pour pills from plastic bottles into one zip-loc type bag and recycle the bottles at home) in order to minimize the amount of non-medication material that is incinerated. Both solid and liquid medications will be accepted; however, liquid medications should remain tightly sealed in their original container.

Intra-venous solutions, injectibles, and syringes will not be accepted.

The only location accepting unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs is the Police/Fire Administration Building located at 1000 Villa Street. Individual fire stations will NOT be accepting take backs during the event or at any other time. If you are not able to make the event but are looking for a disposal location please visit
