On Saturday, April 27, we once again participated in the federally supported prescription Drug Drop Day in North Bend.
We had over 79 pounds of unneeded, unused or expired prescription drugs brought to our location for safe and environmentally sensitive disposal by citizens from throughout the area, both inside of and around North Bend.
We also offer a daily drop service—people can bring their unwanted medications to our office during business hours. To date this year, we have collected over 56 pounds in this manner.
Thanks for the support of the papers and public in publicizing these efforts. It’s making the community safer for everyone.
