Disposal

National Drug Take Back Day on October 22, 2016 Results

The National Drug Take Back Day on October 22, 2016 resulted in Pacific Northwest residents turning in more than 16 tons of unused medicine.

Some of the National Drug Take Back results were:

  • Nationwide the public turned in 731,269 pounds (almost 366 tons).
  • Washington - 19,179 pounds (9.6 tons) removed from circulation.
  • Idaho - 3,190 pounds (1.6 tons) removed from circulation.
  • Oregon - 7,933 pounds (4.0 tons) removed from circulation.
  • Alaska - 2,074 pounds (1.0 ton) removed from circulation.
  • Over the life of the program, 7.1 million pounds (more than 3,500 tons) were turned in.
Take back days and prescription medication drop boxes are important in curtailing the abuse of prescription medication by reducing access to unused, unwanted or expired medications. If you missed your local drug take-back day and need to dispose of prescription medications, find a drop box near you.
