Drug Take Back Day

Posted on 29th April 2016 at 09:42

Longview Police are once again taking part in the annual Drug Take-Back Day, an event that’s sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency. Between 10 am and 2 pm tomorrow, Longview Police will be accepted drop-offs of unused, unwanted and expired prescription medications, no questions asked. Local police and the DEA say that these drop-off events are an excellent method for safely and properly disposing of these drugs, rather than having them be stolen, or be flushed into local water treatment systems. The police departments in St. Helens and Scappoose are also taking part in “Take-Back Day,” also going from 10 am until 2 pm tomorrow. If you’re unable to get to these events, drop-off bins are set up at the Hall of Justice, and at the police department buildings in Longview and Kelso.
