San Rafael, CA – April 30, 2012. Nearly 150 pounds of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications were collected during Saturday’s Take-Back RX event in San Rafael.
San Rafael Police Department hosted the DEA sponsored event at City Hall and people were already arriving prior to the 10 a.m. start time. The drop-off program was very well received, with many residents expressing their appreciation for the opportunity to clear out their medicine cabinets and easily dispose of the contents. Five collection boxes were filled with various pharmaceuticals for a total of 148 pounds. Another Take-Back Day is planned for sometime in the fall.
