Medicine Takeback Day - April 27

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the City of Mercer Island are coordinating a nationwide drug "take-back" day on April 27, 2013 from 10 am to 2 pm at Mercer Island City Hall (9611 SE 36th Street). This one-day event will provide residents with no cost anonymous collection of unwanted and expired medicines.

It is a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet!
Protect our kids, families and environment by properly disposing of your unwanted and expired medicines. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our waters. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high - over half of teens abusing medicines get them from a family member or friend, including the home medicine cabinet, and often without their knowledge.
