The Montesano Police Department is installing a prescription drug drop box of their own. Chief Brett Vance told the city council at this week’s meeting “I purchased a drug drop box that we’re going to be installing in the lobby of the police department. Hopefully it will be here in the next month. I think it will be a good resource for our citizens to be able to get rid of those unwanted prescriptions that sometimes find their way onto our streets.” The prescription drugs collected are incinerated. Vance said the new drop box should be operational in the next month or so.
If you have prescription drugs that you would like to dispose of before then, you can use the drop box in the Hoquiam Police Department any time.
