Lakewood Police Accepting Outdated Pharmaceuticals

Lakewood Police are now participating in a community based collection program for waste pharmaceuticals and controlled substances. With the support of the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department, they will handle the proper collection and disposal of outdated or unwanted pharmaceuticals, including over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs and controlled substances. The Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department will provide a secured collection drop box which will be monitored by a security camera in the Lakewood Police Department lobby. Residents may drop off eligible waste items on weekdays between 8am and 5pm.
