Police hosts event for unwanted drugs

The Bainbridge Island Police Department will be accepting prescription medications for disposal this month.

Residents are asked to bring their unwanted prescription medications as part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s “Drug Take-Back Initiative.”

The police department will accept medications for disposal from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.

The Drug Enforcement Agency organizes a disposal event biannually.

Police advise residents who can’t make it to the event to hold on to any unwanted prescriptions until the next event in spring 2014.
