The Kent Police Department is partnering with the DEA to collect any unused/expired medications on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023, from 10 a.m. – Noon.

“Medicines that sit in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse,” police said.

Police will be set up outside of the police department at 232 4th Ave S. (map below) to collect your meds for no fee.
