Residents can dispose of their unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs safely during the Independence “Take Back” day Saturday, Oct. 26.
Independence police are taking part in the DEA-sponsored event. They will collect the drugs for disposal, with no cost and no questions asked.
The collection will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot north of Independence City Hall, 111 E. Maple. A drive-through lane means you don’t need to leave your car to drop off your drugs.
Stadium Pharmacy, 4811 S. Arrowhead Drive, also will have drop-off boxes inside their business.
