Unite! Washougal participated in the October 27th, 2018 national Drug Take Back event by hosting a drop of site at Silver Star Search and Rescue. Clark, Skamania, and Klickitat Counties residents dropped off a total of 3,678 pounds of unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications. The assistance of local law enforcement officers, pharmacists, coalition staff and community volunteers was essential and invaluable to this effort. As pills were received, they were boxed and weighed by law enforcement to be taken away and incinerated by the DEA.
Thank you to all our partners and volunteers who made this event possible and successful!
