Opportunity to discard unused prescriptions

Douglas County is participating in the Oct. 28 National Drug Take Back Day.

It is the goal of Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Partnership of Community Resources and East Fork Fire and Paramedic District, who have partnered with the DEA to collect every unused, unwanted and expired prescription, along with non-prescriptive medication at the five drop locations. 

The locations will be operating from 10am to 2pm at Wal-Mart in Carson City, Walgreens in Gardnerville, DCSO Ranchos substation, East Fork Fire and Paramedic station No. 4 in Topaz Ranch Estates, and Safeway grocery store in Zephyr Cove. 

You may also drop off pet medications and liquid form of medications.
