On Saturday, September 25, 2010, the City of Mountain View Fire Department is offering residents the opportunity to dispose of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. This one day service is a collaborative nationwide effort, in cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and is free and anonymous, no questions will be asked.
Residents may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its original container and disposing of it directly into the take-back receptacle. Both solid and liquid medications will be accepted; however, liquid medications should remain tightly sealed in their original container.
Intra-venous solutions, injectibles, and syringes will not be accepted.
The only location accepting unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs is the Police/Fire Administration Building located at 1000 Villa Street. Individual fire stations will NOT be accepting take backs.
