Saving unused or expired medication is a bad idea that can lead to improper and illegal use.

However, there is a safe and responsible way to dispose of old and leftover medicines, while protecting family members and the environment.

The Issaquah Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, is offering a responsible way to dispose of old and leftover medicine during National Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 26 at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.

In addition, Issaquah residents can drop off their unused or expired medications anytime from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) at the police headquarters inside City Hall.

Drop off the medication sealed in a clear zip-lock plastic bag. Vitamins and food products will not be accepted. Any personal information and the prescription number may be crossed out. Do not include needles or sharps of any kind. Read more
