Prescription Drug Take-Back


Story courtesy of Register Pajaronian Staff
The Watsonville Police Department, in partnership with Santa Cruz County and the Drug Enforcement Administration, will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by disposing from their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The program also protects the environment by providing an alternative to harmful disposal of unwanted medications down the drain.

Watsonville residents can bring their medications for disposal to the following locations on the following dates:

Watsonville Police Department
215 Union St.
Monday, April 30th
10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

Pajaro Village Home Owners Association Community Building
739 Bronte Ave.
Sunday, April 29
8:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. No hypodermic syringes will be accepted. Watsonville Police Department supports the National Prescription Drug Take-Back campaign but maintains a green medical drop-off container located in the Police Department lobby on an on-going basis.

For additional information contact Sargent Henry Robles at 768-3385.
