Medications & Pharmaceuticals


Unused medicines are accepted in the garbage, however there are better ways to dispose of them.

Medicines flushed down the toilet add unwanted contaminants to surface water bodies and marine habitats. Medicines put in your garbage could be found and accidentally consumed by children or pets, or resold illegally.

Drop Off: Controlled substances can be dropped off at Burien Police Station located at 14605 Ave SW during business hours. For additional drop-off centers, visit the Take Back Your Meds website or call 425-388-3199.
