Drug Take Back Event Spring 2020 - Canceled

This event has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

We will be holding another event this fall.


To help citizens properly dispose of unwanted or expired prescription medicines, the City is holding a one-day-only drug take-back event.

Unwanted prescription medicines will be collected from individual households only. Unknown medicines and veterinary medications will also be accepted. Medications cannot be accepted from businesses such as nursing homes, doctor’s offices or any other institution or business. If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Hirshberger at 503-675-3992 or bhirshberger@lakeoswego.city (link sends e-mail).

In addition to prescription drugs, we will collect vape pens or other e‐cigarette devices from individual consumers only after the batteries are removed from the devices.

No sharps/syringes/EpiPens, inhalers, over-the-counter medicines or health care items (such as vitamins, hand lotion, deodorant, etc.), will be collected. For information on how you can safely dispose of these items, call Metro Recycling at 503-234-3000. Sudafed, Benadryl, and similar products will be accepted.

Please put all pill/tablet medications into a sealed plastic baggie. We do not want the plastic prescription containers. If you bring in a liquid medication, please put the bottle in a sealable plastic bag to prevent leaks.
