Drug Take Back Day
Drug Take Back Day, Saturday, April 29th

On Saturday, April 29thfrom 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will be sponsoring National Drug Take Back Day - an opportunity for people to rid their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  You are encouraged to bring your pills for disposal to the following site in Bonner Springs:

  • Police Department  - 130 N. Nettleton

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This program addresses a vital public safety and public health issue – preventing pill abuse and theft from home cabinets.  Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.  In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines – flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash – both pose potential safety and health hazards.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the April 29th Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website.
