City to Discontinue Meds Drop-Off
The City of Laguna Woods is discontinuing its personal medication drop-off program and will no longer be available after June 30.
New legislation states that drug companies are now responsible for the proper disposal of the medications they produce or distribute and must supply safe disposal for medication at certain sites (free of charge).
Certain local pharmacies accept personal medication for disposal. For more information, please visit www.med-project.org. In Laguna Woods, personal medication drop-off is now available at Rite Aid (24330 El Toro Road, in the plaza with Home Depot and Stater Bros.) and at CVS (24167 Paseo De Valencia, next to Mother’s Market). Benefits of pharmacy-hosted medication drop-off include longer operating hours and more drop-off location options.
