Fairfax County Police to Collect Expired, Old Medicine

Fairfax County is participating in Operation Medicine Cabinet Clean-out, a program by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative, on Saturday (April 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. Only pills or liquids are allowed. No pressurized canisters or needles will be accepted.

Organizers say the disposal is free, confidential and safe. The program is intended to prevent accidental poisoning and drug abuse. Reston’s District Station is located at 12000 Bowman Towne Drive.

The initiative is part of a partnership between county departments, the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board and local businesses.
