    Danville residents looking to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired prescription drugs will have the opportunity to do so April 24, 2021 when the Danville Police Department joins with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to hold a drug disposal event at the Danville Town Offices, 510 La Gonda Way. 

    At the event, officials will accept pills and other solids such as patches, and liquids in consumer containers.  Illicit drugs, intravenous solutions, needles and other sharps will NOT be accepted. For ease of disposal, participants are asked to place the medications in a sealed bag for drop-off.

    For the free and anonymous event, citizens can bring their prescription drugs to the Town Offices from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and drop off their medications for safe disposal. All face covering and social distancing protocols should be followed when dropping off.

    “The partnership between the police and the community is what makes Danville such a great place to live and raise a family,” said Danville Police Chief Allan Shields. “Events like our Drug Takeback event encourage residents to get rid of their unwanted, unused, or expired prescription drugs, reducing the chance for abuse, theft or accidents.”

    Individuals who cannot attend the Drug Takeback Day can still drop off pharmaceuticals, including sharps, in bins at the front desk of the Danville Police Department, 510 La Gonda Way, during normal business hours.

    For more information, contact Administrative Lieutenant Jason Ingrassia at (925) 314-3700 or jingrassia@danville.ca.gov.
