Drug Take-Back Program


The Bainbridge Island Police Department accepts prescription medications for disposal Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm while the station office is open.  You may deposit loose pills directly into the disposal box or submit the entire container. If you choose to dispose of the entire container, we encourage you to remove the label or obscure your personal information with a permanent marker beforehand.  Law enforcement personnel may not handle the medications at any time, which means YOU must drop the items in the disposal receptacle. We cannot assist you with that.

PLEASE: No sharps, intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes, or medical waste! These items are not accepted.

The BIPD also participates in twice yearly Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) events.  If you have a significant quantity of drugs you want to dispose of, you may want to wait for one of these events (usually scheduled for spring and fall) which are geared toward collecting larger quantities.
