Pharmaceutical Drop Box

National Drug Take Back Day
In an effort to eliminate unused and unwanted pharmaceutical drugs in our community, Tigard Police, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is conducting a "Pharmaceutical Drug Take-Back Day." Tigard Police invite you to participate in this locally held event to help reduce the illegal use and dangers of prescription drugs to those other than whom it was intended.

Please mark your calendar for Saturday, September 27, 2014. A drop-off site will be in the parking lot at Tigard City Hall located at 13125 SW Hall Blvd., Tigard, OR. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. The service is free and anonymous.

What to bring?
  • Expired or unwanted prescription medications
  • Medication from deceased family members
  • Drugs that didnít work for you, a family member or pet
  • Unneeded over-the-counter medicines
  • The unwanted drugs can be in either the original container or combined in another container or bag. The labels from prescription containers may be removed or covered with a permanent marker if desired. We cannot accept thermometers, syringes or needles, medical waste, illegal drugs (such as marijuana or methamphetamine), IV solutions, lotions or creams. Also, medications from nursing homes, doctorsí offices or any type of medical facility or business will not be accepted.

    Questions? Please call 503-718-2561.

    Pharmaceutical Drop Box Pharmaceutical Drop Box
    A pharmaceutical drop-box has been installed inside the Tigard Police Department lobby, adjacent to Tigard City Hall located at 13125 SW Hall Blvd. The drop box allows citizens to dispose of unwanted, unused or expired medications throughout the year. The Tigard Police Department is pleased to provide the community this newly added convenience.

    Tigard Police partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration over the past year by participation in the nationally held Drug Turn-In events. Over 1400 pounds of pharmaceuticals were collected as a result of the past three collection events held in Tigard. Past year abuse of prescription pain-killers now ranks second-only behind marijuana as the nationís most prevalent illegal drug problem. It became evident the community wanted options to safely dispose of their unwanted prescription medications. To that end, Chief Orr began steps to bring a more convenient option to Tigard residents.

    • The Med-Return box is available during police lobby hours, everyday from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m.
    • Acceptable items for return are prescription medications and samples, all over-the-counter medications, vitamins, pet medications, creams, ointments and liquid medications in leak-proof containers.
    • The drop box is not suitable for thermometers, syringes, IV bags, bio-waste, aerosols of any type, inhalers and Epi-Pens.
    • The drop box is not intended to receive large quantities of pharmaceuticals from health care facilities.
