Tuesday, March 15, 2022. Save the Date: National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 30

Flushing medications means they can get into our water system which can impact fish, wildlife, and you. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is on Saturday, April 30 and it's the perfect opportunity to safely dispose of medications and help keep them out of our waterways. In April 2021, our partners at the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office collected a total of nine boxes of medications, weighing approximately 270 lbs. 

Take your used, unwanted, and/or expired prescription medicine from your cabinets to have them properly disposed of at the Public Training Center at 12700 SE 82nd Ave Clackamas, OR 97015 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 30.

This is a no-questions-asked opportunity for drugs to be properly turned in and safely destroyed via incineration. Illegal drugs will NOT be accepted.

Drugs allowed for this event include:

  • Prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs to include: tablets, capsules, medicinal creams, patches and vet meds.
  • Vaping devices and cartridges may be turned in, provided lithium batteries are removed.
  • Liquids (including intravenous solutions), syringes and other sharps.
