Four secure collection bins have been set up around Lewis County for residents to dispose of their unwanted or unused prescription medications. The location of the collection bins are:

• Lewis County Law & Justice Center (inside) 345 W. Main Street, Chehalis

• Centralia Police Department (outside) 316 N. Pearl Street, Centralia

• Morton Police Department (outside) 260 Main Street, Morton

Winlock City Hall, 323 NE 1st St., Winlock

Lewis County Public Health & Social Services, in partnership with the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, Morton Police Department and Centralia Police Department, have developed the prescription drug disposal program.

The goals of this program are to offer safe and anonymous disposal of unused or unwanted prescription medications, and to reduce the potential for medications to fall into the hands of children and teenagers, or adults who may misuse them.

Additionally, this program will help protect our environment and drinking water supply as people will no longer need to flush unused medicine down the toilet or put them in the garbage.
Thanks to funding from Northwest High Intensity Drug Trafficking (NW HIDTA), we were able to purchase four secure disposal bins.

Many citizens aren’t aware of their options for the disposal of unused medicines, and sometimes dispose of them improperly or leave them sitting in cabinets and drawers.
