Prescription Drugs Gathered at Event

The Seattle Police Department collected 435 pounds of prescription drugs as part of the first national drug take-back event.

You can still return medicines that are not controlled substances, such as narcotics, to any Group Health location in Washington state, and select Bartell Drugs pharmacies around Puget Sound anytime throughout the year.

Some local law enforcement also provides drug take-back programs for all medicines.  Learn more at www.medicinereturn.com/return-your-medicines or call the King County Household Hazardous Waste Hotline at 206-296-4692.
