Prescription drug take back event

The Spokane Valley Police Precinct at 12710 E. Sprague will host a prescription drug take back event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. I think just about everybody has bottles of old, expired medication in the back of the cabinet that you're not sure what to do with. They will accept all prescription drugs, over the counter medications, vitamins, ointments, inhalers and liquids. They will not accept syringes or any hazardous medical waste.

There will also be a shred truck on site, so feel free to bring up to three boxes of documents to be shredded for free. And if you find yourself up north, there will be a second site at the North Spokane Library, 44 E. Hawthorne Road.

The event is part of the fifth annual National DEA Prescription Drug Take Back Initiative. The last such event in April collected over 400 pounds of medications, according to a police department press release.
