An Rx for Safe Drug Disposal

Ever wonder what to do with your unused or expired prescription drugs? To keep them from entering our waterways and ecosystem, please do not pour them down the sink or flush them down the toilet.

Instead, bring them for disposal to the front of the Santa Monica Police Department at 333 Olympic Drive on Saturday, Oct. 29,  from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. An officer will be available at the curb to make it easier for you to just drive up and drop off your unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs.  The service is free, anonymous and no questions will be asked.

For more information, contact Sergeant Richard Lewis at 310-458-8462 or
