Your Concierge Physician Encourages You to Properly Dispose of Unused Medications

October 19, 2018

The best way to get rid of expired or unused medications is to bring them on Saturday Oct. 27, 2018 from 10 am to 2 pm to one of the participating National Take Back sites. Locations include Torrance Memorial Hospital, Palos Verdes Police, Los Angeles Sheriff Lomita Station, Redondo Beach Police Annex, Torrance Police Department Main Lobby, Hermosa Police Department, Manhattan Beach Police Department, El Segundo Police Department, and Gardena Police Department. There are more sites available if you are not near one of these listed. Visit for more information. This is anonymous. NO questions asked. Medications do not need to be in their bottles.

If you cannot bring your medications to this event the DEA recommends that you take the medication out of the bottle and mix with something unappealing like used cat litter or coffee grounds and seal them in a bag or disposable container and throw that away.
