Prescription Drug Take Back Event in Veneta This Saturday

Sponsored Links

Veneta, Ore. – Do you have unwanted or expired medications at your home? The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to help community members safely dispose of prescription drugs.


This is a no-questions-asked prescription drug drop off in effort to prevent the unsafe disposal of prescription medications, and to prevent medications from being stolen or abused. Disposing of unused medications by flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash pose potential safety and health hazards.

If you are unable to attend the Drug Take Back Event and you have medications you would like to dispose of, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office has a drug drop box located in the Central Reception lobby in the Lane County Courthouse that is available to accept medications (no appointment necessary) Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, excluding holidays.
