The Coalition for Auburn and Lincoln Youth (CALY), the Placer County Youth Commission (PCYC) and the City of Lincoln held a press conference on December 14, 2017 announcing the passage of Lincoln’s Social Host Ordinance, which holds adults accountable for allowing underage drinking or other drug use at parties or gatherings.
Thank you Lincoln, CA residents! Almost 700 visitors dropped off 660 pounds of medications at Rx Take Back Day on Saturday, October 28, 2017, making it their busiest collection day yet.
We greatly appreciate our law enforcement partners and volunteers for making this event run so smoothly. PLEASE help us reduce youth access to prescription medication by monitoring and securing prescription drugs and disposing of any expired or unused medications. You can drop off medications and sharps at the Waste Management Facility – Hazardous Waste for FREE at 3033 Fiddyment Rd. in Roseville or at Recology 12305 Shale Ridge Rd. in Auburn.
