Next Drug Take-Back Day set for April 27th at Southwest Precinct

If you have unused and unneeded – or expired – prescription medication(s), another Drug Take-Back Day is coming up on April 27th. Southwest Precinct Operations Lt. Pierre Davis says the precinct (on Webster just west of Delridge) will be the local drop-off site again this time, 10 am-2 pm. He also notes that they cannot accept syringes/needles – just medications; more info here. Last year, participants dropped off 238 pounds of unwanted medications at the SW Precinct – more than anywhere else in the city.

    Where can we drop off Syringes? There used to be a drop box in White Center at the Public Health, but there does not appear to be a new one at the new remodeled Public Health at Greenbridge. Thanks.

    @ Irukandji – that’s not what it is like at all. This is a very beneficial service provided for people to safely dispose of outdated, no-longer-needed medication. Humans don’t get sick from taking expired meds or from meds getting into the wrong hands, and animals and our environment stay healthier, too.

    What is best way to drop off these medications? Do you need to keep pills in the container or can you put in ziplock?

Sorry, comment time is over.
