In case you missed it this was the first attempt to allow consumers to dump unused and expired drugs, no questions asked. They were smart in Long Beach and set up a drive through operation-throw out the drugs.
DEA Heads Up First Ever Nationwide Prescription Drug Take Back Day–No Questions Asked On September 25, 2010
LONG BEACH - Police and Health Department officials scored more than 700 pounds of expired and unused prescription medication this weekend as part of the DEA's "National Pharmaceutical Take-Back Initiative."
The pill drop off was held Saturday at the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.
Long Beach Police Department officers and Health Department employees created a drive-through drop off from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that drew a steady stream of motorists needing to dispose of potentially dangerous prescriptions, either unused or expired, said Sgt. Dina Zapalski, an LBPD spokeswoman.
