On Saturday, law enforcement agencies across the state will be collecting unused medications as part of the Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

More than 50 locations across Kansas will be accepting the drugs during the semi-annual collection event on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

“Unused prescriptions lingering in medicine cabinets pose a serious risk for accidents or abuse,” Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said. “I encourage all Kansans to take advantage of this opportunity to safely dispose of their unwanted medications by visiting a drop-off site on Saturday.”

Over the last four Take-Back days, almost 10 tons of prescription drugs were collected.
