Protect your family, protect the community, and protect the environment by returning unwanted medicines at safe disposal locations. Bothell citizens can properly dispose of unwanted medicines locally for free. Narcotic and non-narcotic medicines accepted.
**The medicine return drop site at the Bothell Police Department is temporarily closed. We will update our website as soon as it is available. Other community drop sites remain open, see link below**
Gather all unwanted medications from wherever you have them stored (drawers, medicine cabinet, etc)
Check the King County Secure Medicine Return link to see which items are accepted. Narcotics and prescribed controlled substances (Oxycontin, vicodin, etc) are accepted only at law enforcement locations (including Bothell Police Department)
Bring accepted items to the most convenient location. Leave items in their original containers. You will have an opportunity to mark out any personal information. Do not mark out the names of the medication. No questions will be asked, though your zip code will be recorded for research purposes.
Place the items into the secure double locked collection box.
