Prescription Drug National Take Back Initiative
The 2nd National Prescription Drug Take Back Day
Saturday, April 30, 2011
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Dear Community Friends;
The following information is from the Drug Enforcement Agency.
…. Due to the overwhelming success of the first event, DEA has scheduled the second National Prescription Drug Take Back Day which will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2011, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for those who missed the first event or who have subsequently accumulated unwanted, unused prescription drugs, to safely dispose of them.
If you have unused or expired prescription medication, you can turn them in at the following Seattle Police Department Precincts for safe disposal.
Intravenous solutions, injectibles, syringes or medical waste will not be accepted
Drug turn-ins can also be done through the police departments and sheriff’s offices of other local jurisdictions, to include the Port of Seattle Police Department, the Seattle Office of the DEA, and Kitsap and Snohomish County locations among others.
