Take back prescription drugs program results

The Raytown Police Department participated in the U.S. Drug Enforcement agency’s National Drug Take-Back Day.  Officers and volunteers manned two sites where the public was invited to bring old, unused and excess medications to be disposed of safely.  The program is an effort to protect our water supplies and reduce the likelihood for misuse of medications that people have accumulated and no longer use or need.

Despite some bad weather to start the day, Officers reported a good turn-out at both collection sites at Cosentino’s Apple Market at 350 Hwy & Raytown Rd. and the front steps of City Hall.  Raytown Police Community Services Coordinator Marilyn Fleming reported that 310.5 pounds of medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, were collected and turned over to the DEA for safe destruction.

The Police Department, which has participated in this semi-annual event for the past couple of years, also maintains a prescription drug take-back collection box in the lobby of Police Headquarters.  That box, similar to a postal collection box, was supplied to the Department by Public Water Supply District #2.  It is an effort to provide residents a safer method of disposal than their home garbage, sink drains or toilets.  Residents can drop off their unused medications there 24 hours a day.
