In a collaborative partnership between BestCare Prevention, Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, and Crooked River Ranch Fire & Rescue, a 24-hour medication collection box has been installed in the lobby of the fire station located at 6971 SW Shad Road. This medication collection box was funded with a grant issued to BestCare Prevention.
If you no longer have a need for a medication or the medication has expired, please drop it in the secure collection box to ensure proper disposal. Medications may include any prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins/herbal medications, or veterinary medications.
Items that should NOT be placed in the box include needles or sharps and biohazard materials. Needles or sharps can be brought to the Shad Road fire station Monday - Friday from 8:00 – 5:00 for proper disposal by fire crews.
If you have any questions please drop by the fire station or call us at 541-923-6776.
