Biggest One-Day Drug Take Back Event


Next Drug Take Back Day at the Yakima County Sheriff's Office: April 23, 2022, 10am to 1pm.

Twice a year, in April and October, the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office hosts a Drug Take Back Day and invites the public to safely drop off their expired or unused medications and drugs, no questions asked. Safe Yakima Valley’s Drug Free Action Team Coalition partners with organizations and agencies throughout the valley. 

In October, we collected 200+ pounds of drugs in 3 hours, thanks to our title sponsor Brumback & Ottem Injury Law, Washington Beef, which provided 400 hotdogs, and local media who helped get the word out. 

“This is a great event for our valley,” said Yakima County Sheriff, Robert Udell. “Getting drugs off of our streets creates safer homes for our families, less crime, and a safer community for our officers.”

Join us for the next Yakima Drug Take Back Day April 23, 2022, or visit a local pharmacy or law enforcement center to safely drop off your expired or unused drugs and medications.
