Get rid of your old prescription drugs safely and anonymously this Saturday 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. citizens can take any unused prescription drugs to two nearby locations – the Port of Seattle Police Department Shilshole Bay Marina (7001 Seaview Ave NW) and the Port of Seattle Police Department Fishermens Terminal (3919 18th Ave W). More locations can be found here.
