INLAND EMPIRE, CA – The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take Back Day will be held on Saturday, October 28, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Facilities in Inland Empire Utilities Agency’s (IEUA) service area will open their doors to receive unwanted, unused, and expired prescription medications on this date at no charge and no questions asked.
IEUA is proud to announce its support for the “No Drugs Down the Drain” campaign initiated by the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts. Safely disposing of unused medications not only protects the environment but also helps prevent contamination of our water supply. The campaign aims to raise awareness among California residents regarding the dangers of flushing unused, expired, or unwanted medications down the toilet or drain and provides safe disposal methods.
