This Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Kent Police Department (232 4th Ave. S, Kent) will collect any expired, unwanted or unused prescription medication. The Kent PD cannot collect intravenous solutions, injectables, syringes or medical waste, or illicit substances including marijuana or methamphetamines.

Please remove all prescription labels or mark out any identifying information with a permanent marker.

Proper disposal of medications is key to preventing misuse and abuse. Prescription drugs are the second most commonly abused narcotic. The dangers posed by prescription medications have no boundaries. Why safe disposal? Safe disposal reduces drug abuse, reduces accidental poisoning and reduces medication in the environment. We have collected over 300lbs of medication at previous take back days!

Call 253-856-5883 with questions or for more information or visit Kent PD online.
