Tigard Police Collect 650lbs of Meds at Take Back Event
Thanks to the 245 participants/households who dropped off medications at our Drug Take Back event on April 24, 2021. All told, we collected 650lbs of meds for safe disposal. If you missed the event, you can find a list of places that take back meds on this webpage.
We expect there will be more options in the near future as the Oregon Drug Take-Back Law (ORS 459A.200 to 459A.266) requires drug manufacturers to fund and develop a statewide drug take-back program that will provide safe and secure disposal of drugs for Oregon residents by July 1, 2021.
Tigard Police will not be participating in the October 23, 2021 Prescription Drug Take Back event due to COVID-19. To find other agencies that are participating, please visit the DEA website here.
