Saving unused or expired medication can lead to improper and illegal use.

So, the Issaquah Police Department is offering residents a chance to dump expired and leftover medication.

The police department is hosting a medication take-back event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.

In addition, Issaquah residents can drop off expired or unused medications anytime from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, at the police department.

People can return unused or expired medications anonymously for disposal — no questions asked.

Prescription painkillers — often stolen and abused — contribute to a statewide overdose epidemic.
