Safe Drug Disposal on National Drug Take Back Day
Prevent misuse or abuse of prescription drugs
Snoqualmie, WA – The City of Snoqualmie and the Snoqualmie Police Department will participate in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day with two locations this year. The event will be held on Saturday, October 26 at the Snoqualmie Fire Station, 37600 Snoqualmie Parkway, and at North Bend City Hall, 920 SE Cedar Falls Way.
Many Americans do not know the safest way to dispose of their unwanted or expired medicine, often causing safety and environmental hazards by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the garbage.
Bring your expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs in pill or patch form. Note that liquids, needles, or sharps cannot be accepted. This curbside, drop-off service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
On an ongoing basis, residents can drop off prescription drugs at the Snoqualmie Police Department during business hours of 8 am-5 pm, Monday-Friday.More Information on National Drug Take Back Day: https://takebackday.dea.gov/
