(National Prescription Take Back Day)…It is the 7th one hosted by the DEA.
It will be held from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm Saturday. The Drug Enforcement Administration and its law enforcement and community partners are giving the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Drop-offs in Imperial County will be set-up at Food For Less in Calexico and at the Von’s Stores in El Centro and Brawley. KXO Radio will be broadcasting from the site in El Centro. Last April San Diego and Imperial Counties collected 9,849 pounds of prescription drugs. Nationally, over 371 tons were turned in.
