Safe Disposal of Prescription Medication
It's so important to dispose of prescription medication in a safe, responsible way so it does not end up in our water supplies, agricultural soils or in the wrong hands. Easier said than done! The Marin County website lists many places where you can turn in prescription mediation no longer needed. However, many of these locations have restrictions making it impossible to properly dispose of medications. I have just gotten off the phone with San Rafael Police Department to confirm all medication in pill form ( no liquids ) can be safely disposed of at their station. They ask that you remove it from packing and put all pills in a ziploc bag. They are located in downtown San Rafael at 1400 5th St.
