If you have unwanted, unused, expired prescription medication, best thing to do is get rid of it through a safe, official, no-questions-asked dropoff, and the next one in West Seattle is coming up two weeks from today, 10 am-2 pm on Saturday, October 26th, at Seattle Police’s Southwest Precinct. Operations Lt. Pierre Davis shared the announcement today, and says that if you have items to dispose of, “Simply bring them to the Southwest Precinct during the aforementioned date and time and your precinct desk officer will do the rest.” It’s a matter of safety, convenience, and even ecological prudence – dumping medication down the drain, or flushing it, contaminates the water that is eventually drained back out into Puget Sound (wastewater treatment doesn’t get everything).
