April is Marin’s Drug Take-Back Month, according to Sausalito Currents, and a perfect time to deposit unused and unwanted medications at one of 24 receptacles located around the county. Marin residents can also order a mail-back envelope to be delivered to their residence. RxSafeMarin.org includes a list of locations and more information about the mail-back option.

The drop-off receptable closest to Sausalito is at the CVS pharmacy at 150 Donahue Street in Marin City.
