If you have old or expired prescription drugs piling up at home, there is a safe and eco-friendly place for you to dispose of them this weekend.
NBCRightNow.com - If you have old or expired prescription drugs piling up at home, there is a safe and eco-friendly place for you to dispose of them this weekend.
A national prescription drug take back day is coming up this Saturday. Local police stations in almost every city in our region are participating. Officers will man stations with barrels where you can drop off prescription drugs. The service is completely anonymous and no questions will be asked.
"A lot of these things get misused by any kind of criminal activity," said Pasco Police Officer Jonathan Davis. "They'll get sold on the streets, they'll get sold in the schools and we don't want any of that kind of thing to happen."
The service is an alternative to flushing drugs down the toilet or down the drain. Drop-off stations will be set up in the following locations on Saturday:
PASCO: 204 W. Clark St. from 10-2
RICHLAND: 871 George W Way from 10-2
KENNEWICK: 211 W. 6th Ave. from 10-2
WEST RICHLAND: 3805 W. Van Giesen Dr. from 10-2
BURBANK: 460 W. Humorist Rd. from 10-2
WAITSBURG: Fire Station: 234 Main St. from 10-2
YAKIMA: Solarity Credit Union: 401 Tieton Dr. from 9-1
