The Walnut Creek Police Department is participating in the sixth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Saturday, April 26.
Take-Back Days allow the public to help prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs.
The collection sites will be open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the service is free and anonymous -- no questions asked.
The Walnut Creek police site is the station lobby at 1666 North Main St.
Medicines that languish in home cabinets create a public health and safety concern because they are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse.
