Take backs in North Bend, Snoqualmie: Dispose of your drugs April 28

Snoqualmie and North Bend Police Departments will once again be participating in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This event will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at two locations:  the Snoqualmie Fire Department, located at 37600 S.E. Snoqualmie Parkway and at the North Bend Park & Ride located at the southeast corner of East North Bend Way and East McClellan Street.

Participants can dispose of any unwanted or unused pharmaceuticals, no questions asked, at the collection. All drugs collected will be safely incinerated.

This nationwide event, sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Agency, has helped eliminate hundreds of pounds of unused, potentially dangerous prescription drugs from the Valley. Last year, agencies in North Bend and Snoqualmie collected and disposed of 236 pounds of drugs.

Also part of the North Bend collection, sheriff’s personnel will accept donations for the Mount Si Food Bank.
