Effective February 17th, the Prescription Take Back Box located outside Fire Station 21 on Old Belfair HWY has been taken out of service. Moving forward, take back boxes will be available at both Peninsula Community Health and Rite Aid in Belfair.
Due to the tremendous success of the Take Back Boxes in our community, North Mason Regional Fire Authority and the Mason County Sheriff’s Office have been overwhelmed in their attempt to keep up with the Take Back Box located at Fire Station 21. We are thrilled by the success of this program and are grateful to have had a part in it. Unfortunately, the Take Back Box fills up faster than it can be emptied, and the outdoor location poses a security issue that cannot be overlooked. Unlike the Take Back Box at Fire Station 21, the Take Back Boxes at the pharmacy locations are backed by the state. This ensures that the pharmacies can keep up with the increased demand, which helps keep our community safe.
- Peninsula Community Health is located at 31 NE State Route 300 Belfair, WA 98528
- Rite Aid is located at 23940 NE SR-3 Belfair, WA 98528
Please see below for pictures of these Take Back Box locations and available hours. Thank you for your participation, which has made this program such a great success and for your understanding as we make this necessary transition.
