Rx Drug Take Back

Don't flush your medications down the toilet or throw them in the trash.  Dispose of unused or out-of-date prescription drugs safely!  Two drop-off locations will be open Saturday, October 26th from 10am-2pm to take back controlled and non-controlled substances.  How much was collected earlier this year?  Find out how much was collected right here in Clark County in April.

Here is a quick link to overall safe disposal of medications.  The Free Clinic of Southwest Washington accepts specific medication donations and participating pharmacies take back non-controlled substances.  Sheriff and Police Departments take back controlled substances. 

We encourage you to learn more about the Prevent! Coalition of Clark County and their extensive list of resources.   Even more information is just another click away, including more about the national initiative.
