We can take prescription bottles, but not with the drugs in them! If you need to dispose of medications, it's best not to put them in the trash, or flush them into the water treatment system. Multiple local disposal boxes exist, including in Milwaukie, the Police Department, and inside the Walgreens on Oak St. (which is not listed on the website link, but there is a dropbox there).
