DEA Drug Take Back Event
Saturday, April 29, 2017 10am to 2pm
The Bainbridge Island Police Department is once again accepting prescription medications for disposal on ONE DAY ONLY. Stop by the police station at 625 Winslow Way East on Saturday, April 29, between 10am and 2pm to dispose of your unwanted medications as part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s nationwide "Drug Take-Back Initiative."
PLEASE: No sharps, intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes, or medical waste! These items will not be accepted at this event, which is geared toward collecting unwanted medications only. We will accept controlled substances, and over the counter substances only.
You may deposit loose pills directly into the disposal box or submit the entire container. If you choose to dispose of the entire container, we encourage you to remove the label or obscure your personal information with a permanent marker beforehand.
Law enforcement personnel may not handle the medications at any time, which means YOU must drop the items in the disposal receptacle. We cannot assist you with that.
If you miss the event, please do not toss your medications in the trash or by flushing. Simply hold onto your medication until the next event.
