Take Back Day

Lincoln City Police will set up a collection box at the Lincoln City Community Center 10 a.m. -2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, as part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

“National Take Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs while also educating the public about the dangers of improper disposal of medications and the potential abuse of prescription drugs,” Lincoln City Police said.

Expired or unused medication should be sealed in a container or plastic bag when dropped off at the Community Center or police station and sharp objects, liquids or radiation drugs will not be accepted.

Collection and proper disposal of medications can prevent chemicals leeching into the environment.

Lincoln City Police have a prescription drug drop off bin in the lobby, 1503 SE East Devils Lake Rd, that citizens can access to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs seven days a week.
