Operation Medicine Cabinet Cleanout Coming Up in Fairfax County

In conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative, Fairfax County is promoting “Operation Medicine Cabinet Cleanout.”

On Saturday, Oct. 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents are encouraged to drop off unused or expired medications at any Fairfax County Police district station. Medicine must be pills or liquids only, as no pressurized canisters or needles will be accepted.

The disposal is free, confidential and safe, organizers say. Promotional materials for the event say safe handling of unused or expired medications prevents accidental poisoning, protects the environment and prevents drug abuse.

Operation Medicine Cabinet Cleanout is sponsored by the Unified Prevention Coalition of Fairfax County in partnership with local businesses and in collaboration with these Fairfax County government departments: Police, Health, Public and Private Partnerships, Neighborhood and Community Services, Public Works and Environmental Services, and the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board.

The Reston District Station of the Fairfax County Police Department is located at 1801 Cameron Glen Drive.
