The city of Mercer Island will hold a Med Take Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 28. People can safely drop off unwanted or unneeded prescription medications by driving up to the city hall parking lot (9611 SE 36th St.).
The following medications will be accepted: Any unused or expired prescription medication (including Schedule II through V controlled substances); any used or expired over-the-counter medication; and any pet medication.
The program is widely successful across the nation, with thousands of pounds of medications correctly disposed of, helping remove hazards from communities.
