Midtown Drug Take Back Event on April 27

Gather those unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs now and bring to our Spring Drug Take Back Event in April!

This semi-annual Drug Take Back Day is held in partnership with the KCPD Central Patrol Division, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Midtown KC Now.

The drugs will be taken for safe disposal and the containers will be recycled.

All drugs, prescription or over-the-counter, are welcome.
(If you will be disposing of syringes, please be sure they are in a safe container that states that there are needles in the container before they are handed over.)

This service is FREE, absolutely no questions asked.
