Fairfax County police stations will collect expired medications next Saturday as part of annual event encouraging people to clean out their medicine cabinets.
Fairfax police stations will collect old, used and expired drugs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 26 as part of Operation Medicine Cabinet Cleanout. Reston residents can drop off their used medications at the Reston District Station (1801 Cameron Glen Drive).
“Safe handling and disposal of unused or expired medications prevents abuse, accidental poisonings and helps protect the environment,” police said in a statement.
Needles and medications using pressurized canisters, like asthma inhalers or nasal sprays, will not be accepted.
“Disposal is free, convenient, confidential and safe,” according to the event flyer.
The event is sponsored by the United Prevention Coalition of Fairfax County and the Fairfax County government.
