Drug Take Back Day this Saturday

Local law enforcement, including the Sequim Police Department, will participate in the Nationwide Prescription Take-Back Day sponsored by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

Individuals can drop off expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs for destruction from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Sequim Police Department, 609 W. Washington St., Suite 16.

The service is free and anonymous with no questions asked. The collection service includes both controlled and non-controlled prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications.

Illicit drugs such as marijuana, methamphetamine, intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes and medical waste are not accepted.

Organizers recommend that individuals never should flush prescription drugs down the toilet or sink drain unless the label or accompanying patient information specifically instructs them to do so.

For more information on the event, call the Sequim Police Department at 683-7227.
