Prescription drug drop-off is available when the lobby is open.

A permanent drop-box in the department lobby (2600 Pacific Boulevard SW) is available for drop off and safe disposal of any unwanted or expired over-the-counter or prescription medications (including pet medications).

Personnel will collect and destroy the medications in a safe and legal manner by incinerating them at a nearby facility. 

The drop box was donated by the United States Postal Service and refurbished by Oregon Powder Coating, Albany Lock and Key Service, and Xtreme Grafx.
