The Oregon legislature adopted HB 3273 (2019) establishing a drug take-back program in Oregon and requiring DEQ to adopt rules for that program. This program is a statewide product stewardship program for safely disposing of unused medications. DEQ expects to complete this rulemaking by the fall of 2020.
DEQ is preparing rules to support the drug take-back program the legislature
created in HB 3273 (2019). DEQ appointed an advisory committee to assist in the
rulemaking. The committee will help DEQ evaluate possible policies, rule
language, and the rules' fiscal impact.
