Drug Take Back

Drug/Prescription Medication Take-Back

The goal

The Drug Take-Back Program provides a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs.  The program educates the public on how medications can be misused or abused when they are not disposed of properly.  There are three very important reasons that we provide this service:

  1. To keep medications, such as narcotics, off of our streets and out of the wrong hands, including children, 
  2. To keep medications from going into our sewer system, and
  3. To keep medications out of landfills.

This free, anonymous, and convenient service has been hugely successful in our community, allowing us to collect large quantities of prescription medication. 


The Sequim Police Department Drug Take-Back secure receptacle is available to the community in our lobby during regular business hours.  Residents can drop off expired or unused prescription medications - even controlled substances - for destruction. 

Items that are NOT ACCEPTED

  • Syringes,
  • Loose pills**,  
  • Liquid medications that may spill, and
  • Over the counter products (vitamins, supplements, etc.)  

**Please note that loose pills can be placed in a container and then they will be accepted.  NO PLASTIC BAGS.
