IPD Prescription Drug Take Back Event

The Irvine Police Department is participating in the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Community members can drop off unwanted medications at designated locations in the City of Irvine. Sharps and liquids cannot be accepted. This free service, which allows the public to anonymously discard prescription medications, addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. The participant sites are:

  • Hoag Health Center - 16105 Sand Canyon Ave., Irvine, CA 92618
  • Irvine Police Department - 1 Civic Center Plaza, Irvine, CA 92606

IPD urges residents to bring expired or unwanted prescription drugs to the collection site to eliminate the potential for misuse, abuse or accidental poisoning. Improper disposal of unused or expired medications, such as flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, can be hazardous to public safety, public health, and the environment.
