Looking ahead: Drug Take Back Day at Southwest Precinct on April 27

If you have any unwanted or unneeded prescription medications in your home, the Seattle Police Department and DEA are holding a Drug Take Back Day on April 27 to safely dispose of them.

Operations Lt. Pierre Davis with the Southwest Precinct shares the details:

The DEA is sponsoring another “Drug Take Back Day” on Saturday April 27th from 10am to 2pm.

The Southwest Precinct will take any type of prescription and/or over the counter medications. If the medication is in liquid form, make sure that the lids or caps are sealed tight.

Intra-venous solutions, injectibles, syringes, or medical waste will NOT be collected. Also we encourage identifying information be removed from labels by tearing the information away or covering it with black permanent marker.

This is a fantastic service provided by our DEA partners and we encourage our community to take advantage of this service in an effort to rid your homes of unwanted, unused or expired medications.

As always, thank you West Seattle community in helping to make our community safe and drug free!!
