National Prescription Take Back Day is this Saturday, October 28, 2017. Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That's dangerous and often tragic. That's why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in, safely and anonymously. You can find a Prescription Drop Box at Othello City Hall.

The Othello Police Department/City of Othello in cooperation with Oscars Towing has started tagging illegally stored vehicles on the public streets. If a vehicle has been parked in the same location for more than 25 days, the vehicles tabs are expired or the car is inoperable it will be marked with an orange sticker and towed if not moved from the public street. With winter approaching we must clear illegally stored vehicles so that Public Works Crews can plow the streets. If your car has been tagged please get it moved or you may face charges associated with impound fees and storage costs. The City thanks you in advance with your cooperation in this matter and your assistance in keeping our streets safe for our community.

"Pitch Your Pills" in the Rx take back box at City Hall. Last week nearly 35 lbs of pills were removed from the box for incineration. Pitching them in the Rx take back box not only can clean up your medicine cabinet but also keeps them out of the hands of others. By incineration, the pills are kept out of our water system.
