HPD sponsors drug turn-in

The Hillsboro Police Department (HPD) is sponsoring a “prescription drug turn-in” event Saturday, Oct. 26.

The program is designed to help protect the community and the environment by allowing area residents the opportunity to discard expired or unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medications — including unknown tablets and capsules. Liquids and ointments will also be accepted if they are in their original containers.

To turn in unwanted medications, bring them to the HPD headquarters drive-up site at 250 S. E. 10th Ave. between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Oct. 26.

Medical waste, intravenous solutions and Sharps will not be accepted.

For more information, contact HPD at 503-615-6785.
