Walgreens brings safe medication disposal kiosk program to Oregon


DEERFIELD, Ill. - Walgreens on Wednesday added its safe medication disposal kiosk program to its locations in Oregon with the installation of drug take-back kiosks at six Walgreens drug stores across the state. The launch is part of Walgreens effort, announced in February, to install safe medication disposal kiosks at more than 500 of its drugstores around the country.

“By making safe medication disposal kiosks available in select Oregon stores and expanding to other states this year, Walgreens is taking an important first step to reduce the misuse of medications throughout the country and curb the rise in overdose deaths,” stated Richard Ashworth, Walgreens president of pharmacy and retail operations. “Everyone has a role to play in minimizing prescription drug abuse, and we are committed to being part of a comprehensive solution to reverse this epidemic.”

Safe medication disposal kiosks are currently available in more than 300 Walgreens pharmacies across 23 states and Washington D.C.
