Prescription drug take-back day Saturday

April 29th, 2011 · 1 Comment

You can get rid of your old prescription drugs safely and anonymously on Saturday (4/30)  as part of the second Drug Enforcement Agency National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. “I encourage every American to take advantage of this valuable opportunity to safely dispose of unused, un-needed, or expired prescription drugs,” said Gil Kerlikowkse, Director of National Drug Control Policy. “Preventing these readily available and potentially deadly drugs from being diverted and misused is something each and every one of us can do to help reduce the epidemic of prescription drug abuse that is harming so many Americans.”

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can take any unused prescription drugs to the Port of Seattle Police Department at Fishermen’s Terminal (3919 18th Ave W).  Other locations can be found here.

    To assist with this effort, I’ll be positioning myself with my own drug take-back receptacle right in front of the event. This is all in an effort to keep the lines short and make sure you can get in as easy as possible. Just look for me with the sign and the bucket. I’ll gladly take and dispose of your drugs for you.

    Lets work together to get rid of those drugs.
