Another option for safe disposal of unused medication is “Dispose Rx”, which is a kit for safe disposal of medications in the convenience of your own home. This product can be obtained at many local retailers including CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart.

If you have any other questions regarding safe disposal of unused medications please contact your local pharmacy or the Shawnee Police Department Property Room at (913) 742-6814.
