The County is holding a Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at lots of locations around the County on April 30, 2011. This is a chance for you to anonymously get rid of old drugs around the house. Fortunately for us, every day is Drug Take-Back Day, as we have a permanent box at the local Police Station. The box is located at the Carmel Valley Police Station on El Camino Real, just inside the back parking lot fence (it looks like a mailbox). Just reach through the fence and drop your unwanted items into the box. Items in the dropped off will be incinerated.
