Police accepting prescriptions drugs for a week in lieu of designated day

The front counter staff in Kelowna, Lake Country and West Kelowna will not be available during National Prescription Drug Drop Off Day, Saturday, May 11, and encourage you to drop off your unwanted prescriptions at your local pharmacy or to a detachment during business hours.

The BC RCMP supports the National Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day, May 11, and is extending its support by accepting prescriptions for a full week till May 17, and ensuring these drugs are disposed of safely. Our three detachments are open Monday to Friday and will be happy to accept prescription medications during regular business hours. Please do not drop off medication outside of closed detachment buildings, for public safety reasons.

In BC, the Medications Return Program has been in place since 1996. This program allows the public to return unused or expired medications to participating pharmacies around the province.
