Followup: Southwest Precinct ‘wins’ Drug Take-Back Day

April 30, 2012 at 10:27 am | In West Seattle news, West Seattle police | 4 Comments

When we stopped by the Southwest Precinct at midmorning Saturday to check on Drug Take-Back Day (WSB coverage here), we saw a steady stream of people bringing in their unwanted/unneeded/expired medication. Big enough turnout, in fact, that according to an update on SPD Blotter, West Seattle’s precinct netted the biggest “take” on Take-Back Day – 238 pounds! Here are the citywide results.

  1. I can’t figure if this means West Seattle takes more drugs than the rest of the city – or fails to take more drugs than the rest of the city.

  2. KatherineL, I think it shows that the folks of West Seattle take the time to dispose of unused medication properly. Thanks West Seattle!

  3. I would say it is because of the publicity by WSB. This community is so fortunate to have this wonderful blog. You always know what it happening in our side of the Duwamish!
