Drug take-back helps prevent medicine misuse

The take back is the proper way to dispose of unwanted medicine because dumping unused prescription drugs in trash or toilet leads to water pollution.
The public can dispose of medications 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at five Lee’s Summit locations.
Since 2010, Lee’s Summit residents have properly disposed of more than 8,000 pounds of medication.
Officers from the Lee’s Summit Police Department and Jackson County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to accept medication at these Lee’s Summit locations: • Lee’s Summit Police Department: 10 N.E.
Tudor Road • Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, 4001 N.E.
