Fate of ‘Take Back Your Meds’ program to be decided Monday, March 7

Take Back Your Meds (Senate Bill 5234) is the proposed statewide program that would provide convenient drop-off locations for unused medicines for safe and secure disposal. Supporters of the program, like Executive Director of the Washington Poison Center Jim Williams, believe a statewide system is needed to ensure that all Washington residents have easy access to a place to take their unused drugs. With the vote coming to a close on program on March 7, there has been a lot of buzz around the issue of pharmaceutical disposal and what a program like Take Back Your Meds would do for the community.
