Residents of Kenmore now have a free and easy way to properly dispose of their prescription drugs.
The City of Kenmore has installed a prescription drug drop box in the lobby of City Hall, 18120 68th Ave. NE. Turning in expired or unused prescription drugs for disposal is the only secure and environmentally sound way to dispose of leftover medicines. Residents may drop off medication Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays, no questions asked. They are unable to accept needles, fluids or inhalers.
Unwanted prescription drugs left in the home endanger our children, seniors and pets.
It’s important to properly dispose of drugs. Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.
