In a cooperative partnership with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and LS Cares, the Lee’s Summit Police Department now has a new way for residents to dispose of old, expired or unwanted prescription medications. Located inside the lobby of the Lee’s Summit Police Department is a dedicated drop off box where residents can dispose of medications. The lobby is open 24 hours a day and no appointment is necessary. There are a few guidelines for using the box and there are also two other locations within Lee’s Summit with the same capability.
· Prescription medications, patches and ointments
· Over the counter medications
· Cough syrups
· Drug samples
· Pet medications
· Original packaging is allowed, no need to remove labels
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED:
Residents can also find a drop box at Lee’s Summit Medical Center, 2100 SE Blue Parkway as well as the Jackson County Missouri Sheriff’s Office located at 4001 NE Lakewood Court, LSMO 64093.
