Residents with unused or unwanted prescription medications can safely dispose of them at a drug take-back event April 27 at the Downey Police Department.

Police officers and volunteers will collect the drugs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Over-the-counter medications, including expired medicine, can be dropped off but needles are not accepted.

The take-back event will be held in the police department’s west lot on Brookshire Avenue rain or shine.
