National Prescription Drug Take Back Day - October 26, 2019

On Saturday, October 26, 2019, the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station will be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. On this date, SCV Sheriff's J-Team deputies will be partnering with Ralphs and Walmart pharmacies at two locations between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. During that time, residents can turn in any unwanted or expired prescription medications. The program is anonymous and individuals disposing of medications will not be required to produce identification.

At SCV Sheriff's last drug take back event on September 13, 2019, deputies took in 390 pounds of unused or expired medications. 

On Saturday, October 26, Drug Take Back collection sites include:

  • Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station, 23740 Magic Mountain Parkway, Santa Clarita, 91355 (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.*)
  •  Walmart, 26471 Carl Boyer Drive, Santa Clarita, 91350 (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.*)  

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

Drug Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for our community members to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths.

*Please note that collections will be picked up promptly at 2 p.m. We recommend that you arrive no later than 1:45 p.m. for medication disposal.
