Annual Prescription Drug "Take Back" April 27
April 15, 2013
(INDEPENDENCE, Mo.) Monday, April 15, 2013 – The Independence Police Department is joining thousands of other law enforcement agencies across the country in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s annual national prescription drug “Take-Back” effort on Saturday, April 27.
The public is invited to bring their unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal with no questions asked and at no cost.
The Independence collection site will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot north of City Hall, 111 E. Maple. People will be able to drop their drugs off in a drive-through lane without leaving their car.
As an added convenience, this year Stadium Pharmacy, 4811 S. Arrowhead Drive, is also participating by adding drop-off boxes inside their business.
Police Major Terry Storey said, “This is an opportunity for the public to safely empty out medicine cabinets of drugs that are no longer needed or have expired, including prescription drugs that may contain controlled substances.”
