Rx Drug Turn-In Event. Turn in your unused prescription drugs!

Saturday September 18th, 10:00am-4:00pm at the Gateway Fred Meyer store at NE 102nd & Halsey. Look for the Portland Police Bureau Mobile Precinct.

The purpose of the one day event is to destroy unused and potentially dangerous prescription drugs in a manner that raises awareness about the abuse of prescription drugs among teens, while protecting our waterways. Community members will be able to turn in unused prescription medications, obtain information about keeping kids safe from the abuse of prescriptions drugs, and interact with Crime Prevention Coordinators and Portland Police Officers. Prescription medications turned in at this event will be incinerated.

What to Bring:

  • Expired or unwanted prescription medications.
  • Drugs that are no longer used

Leave all medicines in their orginal containers if possible. Please do NOT bring thermometers, needles, or medical waste of any type. For more info contact Jenni Bernheisel at 503-823-2781 or Jenni.Bernheisel@portlandoregon.gov.
