Kirkland Police and DEA host ‘Drug Take Back’ event

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

For the sixth year, the Kirkland Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), will host a free and anonymous “Drug Take Back” event on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kirkland Justice Center, 11750 NE 118th Street.

The event will be held in the lobby of the Kirkland Police Department. Unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs will be accepted. Pills or patches will be accepted; liquids and needles will not be accepted. The collection service is free and anonymous.

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines — flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash — pose potential safety and health hazards.
For more information about the drug take back, please contact Lieutenant Nick Seibert, Kirkland Police Department at (425) 587-3445 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
