The safe management and disposal of pharmaceutical (medicine) waste is important to CVSan and our community. Please do not dump any pharmaceutical waste down the drain. Castro Valley Community Action Network (CVCan) has found: “Improper disposal (of pharmaceuticals) can lead to pharm abuse, accidental poisonings and groundwater/bay pollution.”
Thanks to the partnership between CVSan, Eden Medical Center, and the Alameda County Medication Disposal Initiative Workgroup, you can drop off your pharmaceutical waste for free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at:
Eden Medical Center Emergency Entrance
20103 Lake Chabot Road
Castro Valley, CA 94546
