Drug take-back event is Oct. 24

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The biannual drug take-back event sponsored by the federal Drug Enforcement Agency will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24.

Anyone with excess prescription or over-the-counter drugs is urged to participate. This year, the DEA also is taking back e-cigarettes and vaping devices with the batteries removed.

The drive-through drop-off event will be on Second Street side outside Warrenton Police Department, 225 S. Main Ave. Volunteers will come to the vehicle to retrieve the medications. There also is a drop box inside the station, as well as the Seaside police station, for year-round drop-offs.

Those who are immobile or can’t make it to the station can contact Chief Matt Workman at, who will make arrangements to retrieve the medications.
