Another ‘Drug Take-Back Day’ coming up this Saturday

Last April, West Seattle dropoff points for “Drug Take-Back Day” brought in more than 250 pounds of prescription drugs – taking them out of medicine cabinets and other storage places where they would pose various risks. This Saturday, it’s happening again, so if you have expired, no-longer-needed, or otherwise-unwanted prescription drugs on hand, gather them up and get ready to drop them off. The Seattle Police Southwest Precinct is listed as the West Seattle site this time, 10 am-2 pm Saturday, Delridge/Webster.

    Last year a few readers missed out when they went to the police station, saw no drop-off station like pictured above and left.
    The precinct had no signage and people needed to park and enter the precinct to access the disposal containers in the lobby.

    Wondering, what do they do with them?

    didn’t they do this last year along Admiral Way at the lookout?

    Don’t do it. People should be able to return the unused scrips for cash back. Besides these drugs do not go stale. Keep em for emergency use.

Sorry, comment time is over.
