Do you have a collection of partially-filled prescription bottles that you’ll never use? Or prescriptions well past their expiration date? You can turn them in for safe disposal on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, this Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Seattle Police Department South Precinct, 3001 S. Myrtle St.

A notice in the Seattle Police Email Community Newsletter this week said:

“The purpose of this National Take Back Day is to provide a venue for persons who wanted to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. This effort has been a huge success in removing potentially dangerous prescription drugs, particularly controlled substances, from our nation’s medicine cabinets.”

Intravenous solutions, injectibles, syringes, or medical waste will not be accepted for disposal.
